I hōhiperatia a Biggs Morrell nā tōna taumahatanga rua rau rima tekau mā rima kiro karamu, i whakatauhia ai ngā tākuta, kotahi marama noa te roanga māna ki te mata o te whenua. A, i taua wā tonu, ka tīnihia e ia tōnā aronga ki te ao, me te mea, e waru tekau kirokaramu te taumahatanga kua whakangarohia e ia. Ināianei, kei te haere tonu tōna whakapau kaha ki te whakaora ake anō i a ia, i tana tinana.
Kāore a Morell i te kai i ngā inu coke, ngā keke me ngā pae, ināianei ko ngā kai pai me te whakapakari tinana te kai māna.

“They flew me up from here from New Plymouth to Waikato they had to bring a helicopter down from Auckland because I couldn't fit on the rescue helicopter here.”
I reira kī mai ngā tākuta he kōtahi noa te marama ka ora tonu a ia ki te mata o te whenua, i konei, ka toko ake te hiahia ki roto i aia kia whai i te ara hauora, i āna tamariki e timata ana ki te rā tuatahi o te kura.
“They just turned five just knowing they were home with the Mrs and just knowing I couldn't be there on their first day it really hit hard and pulled the strings yeah.”
Ināianei, 32 ngā tau te pakeke, e 80 kirokaramu neke atu kua ngahoro i aia i roto i ngā tau e rua.
“My family they've seen me at my worst they've been there through my worst and I think it's time that I give them the best of me.”
Nā te whakapakari i te tīnana i tāea ai ia te ringa tōhau nui i te whare hākinakina ki te kainga hoki.
