Corin Nemec ... is recovering from emergency surgery after shattering his leg in multiple places in a boating accident this past weekend. Nemec, who was in Belize shooting a film (presumably a production headed for Syfy) called Poseidon Rex, was on board a Coast Guard vessel that crashed violently into a partially submerged barge.
We hit the sinking barge
with an enormous amount of force, Nemec told a local reporter in Belize. [And] that threw me into the side of the boat where I shattered my femur in three places.
Nemec reportedly lost massive quantities of blood, over half of what was in his body. He was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery and required multiple blood transfusions before finally stabilizing.
The good news is he'll recover in time. From the sound of it he could have ended up a lot worse.
