Border Patrol Agent Anthony Ponzio from the Campo Station has been approved as a recipient for the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program. On December 5, 2015, BPA Anthony “Tony” Ponzio was struck by a vehicle while bicycling off-duty in Alpine, CA. Due to the extent and severity of his injuries, Tony was emergency-airlifted from the scene to Sharp Memorial Hospital suffering from several broken bones and internal bleeding. After three months in various hospitals, multiple surgeries, intense inpatient rehabilitation and physical therapy, he was released from the hospital. His mobility is assisted through the use of a wheelchair. Additional surgeries, coupled with inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and physical therapy will be necessary in the immediate future.
