Daniels accompanied Ron and one other undercover agent as additional security to aid Ted Paulson and Jeff Breeher, who were the guards for the safe house at 23033 Pine Canyon where Teri and Kim Bauer were being protected by CTU. Shortly after 3pm, Daniels was disguised as a worker in a basket crane. He checked in over the radio with the other agents, including Paulson, Breeher, and one who was mowing the lawn inconspicuously.
Daniels and the four other CTU agents barely succeeded in protecting the Bauer women, and all of them lost their lives. By 3:23pm, Daniels and the agent who drove the basket crane were killed by Jovan Myovic and Mishko Suba, who were sent by Andre Drazen to murder the two women. Jovan killed Breeher shortly afterward at 3:37, but was unable to kill the women due to interference from the mortally wounded Agent Paulson.
