Frank Farina had just returned from an overseas vacation last fall when he collapsed in the airport customs area.

Now Farina is thanking everyone from Border Patrol agents to hospital workers who jumped into action and also who helped him on his road to recovery.

“In many ways, they took me from a patient to a person, because they pushed me and they wouldn’t let me get down,” Farina said.

“What can I say besides they did their job, and it worked out really well for me, and… thanks!”
