Border Patrol Agent Eric Cabral suffered a fatal heart attack as the result of heat exposure when he and another agent were tracking a group of illegal aliens north of I-8 near Jacumba, California.

He had been separated from his partner when a third agent found him. Agents initiated CPR and emergency medical services were rendered. Agent Cabral was flown to a hospital in San Diego, where he was pronounced dead.

Agent Cabral had served with the Border Patrol for less than two years and graduated from the Border Patrol Academy as a member of Session 601. He was assigned to the Boulevard Station in the San Diego Sector. Agent Cabral was 31 years old at the time of his death and is survived by his parents and sisters.
