The farm that Kurt Kramin owned was in desperate need of help, as the Danube, Minnesota man was suffering from severe burns to his body and a hot spell to his crops that threatened to ruin his harvest for the year, according to KARE 11 Minneapolis.
Kramin noted that although the burns that he had suffered in a recent accident had caused him pain and suffering, the damage done by mother nature was much worse.
"We had a storm go through the first of July, then, we had a really early freeze [in September]. None of the beans or corn would mature at the time that it froze and it really hit us hard on the yield," Kramin told the news source.
When a North Dakota volunteer group heard about the spell of bad luck that Karmin had, they sent a massive truck and a John Deere Harvest Combine to his farm in an effort to help the farmer, according to KARE 11.
Farm Rescue is a non-profit organization that helps farmers recover from illness, injury or disaster in order to sustain their harvest and keep their farm in a working state, according to the organization's website.
