Captain Sig Hansen narrowly dodged a true “Deadliest Catch” moment when he fell unconscious on the deck while fishing for crab.

According to TMZ,  Sig and the crew of the F/V Northwestern were at sea, with cameras rolling, when the captain briefly passed out. TMZ reports that when Sig came to, he brushed it off and wanted to keep fishing.

Sig was airlifted to a nearby hospital after the production crew insisted he get medical attention.
