'Deadliest Catch' Emergency Call

CREWMEMBER DOWN!

11/10/2011 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1109_deadliest_catch_EX_launch
TMZ has obtained the emergency radio call made moments after a member of the "Deadliest Catch" fishing crew collapsed while at sea Tuesday -- and according to the caller, the man showed "signs of shock and possible convulsions."

During the transmission, the caller says the unidentified crew member is "barely coherent" -- and probably suffering from severe dehydration.

The crew member in question -- who we're told was a novice crab fisherman AKA a "greenhorn" -- was airlifted to a nearby hospital in Alaska for treatment.

Sources tell TMZ, he's doing a lot better now -- and a rep for Discovery adds they are "thankful to the Coast Guard and F/V Wizard crew members for their fast action and coordination."

Why the hell are we supposed to give a flying fart about some nobody, rookie, virgin, unknown loser that can't a real job and is a TV whore to go on this show? What makes this unknown loser nobody a celebrity? TMZ has some real issues.

I hate crab and lobster, they are bottom feeders. People here eat them because of poverty. A plane went down in the ocean here a few years back and no locals would eat the lobster as we all knew what they were feeding on. That said it takes a lot of guts for these guys to go out and fish them.

Done a few tours on an Alaskan fishing boat and I find it funny when I see a 'greenhorn' on a crab boat. There's no f-ing way a greenhorn gets on one of those boats if there were no such program as 'The Deadliest Catch'.
