|At 1:40 p.m. on July 11, 2016, an employee was working on a farm. He had worked a shift hand picking tomatoes. He had not been feeling well. He did not eat anything for lunch. About 15 minutes before the rest of the crew finished, he stopped work and walked toward the parking lot. Another worker saw him sink to his knees and then lie down. His employer and emergency medical response personnel performed CPR, but he was pronounced dead on the scene.
