Events of Total Overdose Edit

In the mission The Father, Ernesto finished his task by retrieving files on drug lord Papa Muerte and he had to escape through the plane on the landing strip. He went there by climbing a telegraph line and after almost reaching the strip, a soldier broke it by firing a rocket launcher on the other end of the telegraph line and Ernesto fell on the bottom hangar. He killed everyone there, opened the hangar door and proceeded to the plane where he successfully escaped.

Death Edit

On the plane he explained that the job was too easy, saying he should have do it blindfolded. One of the agents said: "You've been always fast Ernesto, but maybe you should have exercise your brain sometimes" and while he was saying that, two agents approached Ernesto and pushed him out of the plane. While Ernesto was falling, agent said: "Papa Muerte thanks for your hard work", spoiling that he and his group are corrupted DEA agents working for Papa Muerte who used Ernesto to get the files for their boss.
