Corin Nemec -- star of the '90s sitcom "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" -- is recovering from emergency surgery ... after he shattered his leg and lost TONS of blood in a bad boating accident this weekend.

Nemec says he was on board a Coast Guard vessel in Belize on Saturday morning -- on his way to shoot a scene for a movie -- when the boat crashed into a semi-submerged barge.

Nemec claims he suffered major injuries in the wreck -- and was transported to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery.

The actor -- who was working on the movie "Poseidon Rex" -- told a local news reporter, "We hit the sinking barge, and that is what filled the boat to one side immediately with an enormous amount of force, and that threw me into the side of the boat where I shattered my femur in 3 places."

41-year-old Nemec says the break was so bad, he lost over half the blood in his body -- and he required multiple blood transfusions to save his life.

"Everybody onboard that boat, including the gentlemen working for the Coast Guard, everyone is lucky to be alive," Nemec said.

Parker Lewis was a show that played out alot like Ferris Bueller. The kid that was to cool for school and always lucked out in the end. And thats not a rip. This show was a blast. Parker would often address the audience. Breaking the 3rdend wall. Good times. Now what was that giant bullys name?that kid went on to make a few movies and shows. Good luck buddy heres hoping for a fast recovery

Belize run by a crooked government and not a place to vacation. It is dangerous there.

Poor Corin! I'm so glad he's going to be alright. For those who don't know him, he was on Supernatural during Season 6!

Corins such a lovely fellow. He spends alot of time with his fans when he attends conventions here in Australia. More recently he is better known for his roles in Supetnatural and Stargate. He is almost an honorary Aussie in convention circles. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
