Thank you Fulshear Police Captain McCoy and the families of Police Officers Adam Schoof and Dillon Rice for visiting with our Lordsburg Station Border Patrol Agents, my Command Staff, and I this morning at our El Paso Sector Headquarters! I am humbled by your presence, your words of appreciation, and your gratitude towards our agents. Our team of agents from Lordsburg Station displayed their true mettle as they responded to save two human beings that night. Later realizing it was two brothers in blue , made it even more special! I couldn’t be more proud of them! Wishing both Adam & Dillon a speedy recovery. Honor First! 💙🇺🇸💚

US Border Patrol El Paso Sector welcomed the families of injured officers Adam Schoof and Dillon Rice to their Command Station this morning in El Paso, Texas.

The families, as well as Fulshear Police Captain MIke McCoy, were able to shake the hands and hug the necks of the Border Patrol Agents who searched tirelessly for the officers after they crashed into a mountain near Lordsburg, New Mexico.

These agents, stationed out of Lordsburg, were the first responders on the scene and spent hours looking for them. Once they found them, they realized that miraculously, they had survived. They immediately went into action by stabilizing the severely injured officers. They took turns carrying them by stretcher down a very steep mountain. Once on the ground, they were able to transport them for further medical care.

Adam and Dillon are in for a long road to recovery, but thanks to ALL the first responders involved, working together, they were able to survive this tragic event.

UMC Hospital is taking great care of your officers, and for this we would like to thank the staff as well. They are amazing.

The photos depict most of the Border Patrol Agents from the mountain rescue (a few could not make it for the photo) along with Fulshear Police Captain McCoy, far left, and Adam and Dillons immediate family members in the center.

The far right photo is of Border Patrol El Paso Sector Chief Gloria Chavez as she addresses the hero’s of the rescue and well as the families. Her hospitality and command during this event has been beyond compare.

The “thumbs up” photos are those of Adam and Dillon from their hospital rooms. They are now alert and in good spirits.

Adam and Dillon are in for a long road to recovery. Please continue to pray for their healing and help us by thanking all those involved in their rescue.

If you would like to help, the Fulshear Police Foundation has set up a fund. https://www.fulshearpolicefoundation.org/benefit-fpd-officer-schoof-rice
