In 2021, one of the cast members of Deadliest Catch passed away, and now, more information has come to light. The Discovery reality star Todd Kochutin passed away in February 2021 at the age of 30. An obituary for Kochutin stated that he had been hurt while fishing on board the F/V Patricia Lee, but new video footage released by Discovery UK captures the emotional reaction of the crew when they learned of his loss.
In the video, a number of crew members realise that one of their shipmates needed medical assistance after being hurt and demanding it. When someone on board the ship needs medical attention, Captain Bill Wichrowski calls the team on his radio. Later, another captain, Sig Hansen, disclosed that someone might have been struck by a crab pot, an 800-pound cage that can seriously injure a person. Then Hansen describes it as a “scary, scary thought.”
