Phil Harris, one of my favorite captains on the show Deadliest Catch, has suffered a massive stroke and is now in a coma.
Harris had just brought his ship, the Cornelia Marie, in to port to offload a catch when the stroke occurred. He was flown to a hospital in Anchorage, where doctors worked on him for 12 hours before putting him into a coma in hopes of reducing brain swelling.
You might remember Phil as the captain who had a blood clot in his lung in a previous season of Deadliest Catch. There’s no word at this time as to whether the blood clots and the stroke are directly related.
Here’s hoping you get better soon, Phil!
