Yesterday, I happened to check down on my phone and received a text from my mom that one of our farm employees had collapsed and needed to be transported to the hospital. He had been picking papayas and suddenly collapsed. Luckily, he regained consciousness while in the ambulance.
I was really shaken up by this because Dean is family to us. He has been with our farm for several years now and a dedicated, hardworking, and humble person who has helped to get papayas out to thousands of people all over our island. The general public tends to forget that behind that papaya they eat every morning is a person’s sweat equity. Dean’s collapse was just a huge reminder to all of us that farming is a tough and dangerous job.
