    Default Capt. Phil Harris Falls Into Coma After Stroke

    Those who watched Deadliest Catch may care, but I realize others won't. Just thought I'd give fans of the show a heads up.

    Capt. Phil Harris Falls Into Coma After Stroke



    Phil Harris, captain of one of the vessels featured on the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch, makes a habit of survival under the most challenging circumstances.

    We can only hope he'll prove his near-unparalleled toughness once again and bounce back from the severe stroke that landed him in the hospital and in a coma.

    Harris is "resting comfortably," but suffered a stroke while in port offloading his vessel, the 128-foot Cornelia Marie, according to the Discovery Channel website.

    Capt. Phil has been at the helm of the Cornelia Marie for an impressive 18-year span and has two sons, Josh and Jake, who work as deckhands on the boat.

    Both are with Harris in the hospital, according to the network, and on behalf of their ailing dad, they "thank everyone for their heartfelt thoughts and prayers."

    Now in its sixth season, Deadliest Catch follows the adventures of seven crabbing vessels and crews during the Alaskan king crab season in the Bering Sea.

    The Aleutian Islands port of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, is their base of operations. Here's hoping one of the fleet's best-known figures is back in action soon.

    It definitely sucks, but I doubt it's surprising to anyone. Smoked like a chimney and seemed like quite the drinker, not that I blame him. That job is nothing but stress.

    Those two kids of his don't seem ready to run that boat. Based on what the camera shows, at least.

    Yeah, he missed out on the season because of a clot in his lungs I think. I love this show and me and the Mrs. watch it religiously. Hope he is back up on his feet soon. Also hope he learned a lesson from this one and doesn't go right back to his bad habits again.

    He seemed the most humane of all those skippers. RIP Captain Phil. He taught those sons well and I'm sure he'll be smiling down on them.
