A tragic accident has just happened off the coast of Oregon. Three men have perished after their fishing vessel capsized and they were thrown into the roaring ocean.
"A sea vessel featured on 'Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove' capsized in treacherous waters, tragically killing 3 fishermen. According to reports, the U.S. Coast Guard was escorting the Mary B II commercial crab boat Tuesday night around 10 PM off the coast of Newport, Oregon. The boat capsized during the escort in 12 to 14-foot seas while crossing Yaquina Bay bar and there was an immediate rescue effort," reported TMZ.
Crews immediately worked to try and recover the sailors. Two crew members were pulled from the seas, however, resuscitation efforts proved unsuccessful. The third crew member was accounted for but due to the high water his body was unable to be retrieved.
"The Mary B II was featured on the Discovery show, and the premise of 'Dungeon Cove' revolves around the danger of crossing the Newport bar with a full load of crab ... which is apparently what led to this accident," reported TMZ.
This isn't the first time in the history of the show that a crew member has died. Their occupation was at one time said to be one of the deadliest in the world, hence the show's name.
Join us as we pray for their families who are now enduring this tragedy. We pray they find comfort and peace in the grace of our Lord.
