Quote: While my Dad works, my job is going to school!
On February 1, 2000 Ricky was nearly crushed to death by a 9 ton bulldozer. The impact pushed him 4′ into the muddy soil. His recovery has been remarkable considering the severity of damage to his internal organs and bones. After suffering 2 heart attacks and months of physical therapy, Ricky has nearly fully recovered.
This case was Chef David’s most extreme response in 4 years!
Ricky is still in physical therapy, but is doing exrtemely well today.
Ricky is also this years “poster child” for the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.
