The culinary community is rallying behind Sutherland following the incident. On July 3, his hat blew off while boating, and when he reached for it, the boat he was on hit a wave and he fell into the water near the motor. As a result, he suffered significant injuries and was hospitalized.
Sutherland suffered a broken arm and jaw, and cuts on his face when he hit the boat's prop. A GoFundMe started by his family has raised more than $220,000 to help pay for medical bills as Sutherland has no health insurance and is facing many more surgeries.
