A North Dakota farmer’s 1,000-Acre harvest has been saved by Neighbors after the farmer went into cardiac arrest. It is harvest time in North Dakota, and like every other farmer, Lane Unhjem was also expecting a good harvest this season until the unexpected happened.

Unhjem’s combine caught fire while harvesting and he went into cardiac arrest. He was immediately flown to a hospital in Minot and his condition has been stabilized. However, he wouldn’t be getting into the driver’s seat of a combine harvester soon.

Unhjem and his family were about to take a big financial hit since 1,000 acres of crops are yet to be harvested. However, his friends and neighbors rendered some help after they learned about Unhjem’s health condition.

I talked to a couple of farmers, got their equipment, and then other people just started calling and we had equipment offered from all over the place in the county, and their workers to go with it.

When the news got out, about 60 farmers volunteered to help Unhjem, setting aside their harvests. While everyone seems pleased by the outcome, Binde wasn’t surprised that other farmers helped out when one of them was in need.

Everybody knows the Unhjems, and they are good people. [It’s just kind of the farming way of life, too. You help your neighbor out when they need it and don’t expect anything in return.
