Sad news for one of the stars of the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch.
Phil Harris, the captain of the Cornelia Marie, suffered a stroke on Friday while unloading his boat and was flown to a nearby hospital.
Harris is now said to be in a medically induced coma after undergoing a 12-hour surgery Sunday night in order to reduce brain swelling.
Harris' sons, Josh and Jake, released the following statement:
"Josh and Jake Harris thank everyone for their heartfelt thought and prayers. 'The Deadliest Catch' community has always been more like family than just fans, and Discovery Channel joins the Harris boys in thanking everyone for their wishes of support. Captain Phil is resting comfortably and is in the care of excellent doctors and nurses. We will update everyone on his progress as best we can."
Let's hope for a speedy recovery.
