Corin Nemec severely injured in boat crash while filming movie



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.

Yikes! It sounds like he's lucky to be alive. Boat collisions like that often produce unconsciousness and drowning, on top of everything else, and of course the collision was probably in the ocean - which is full of sharks. Good thing it was a Coast Guard vessel.

He still acts?

But yeah, good to see he should be fine. Someone I know works on a cruise ship and was / is in Belize. looks nice.

It is good to know he'll be alright.

But, really, "Poseidon Rex?" What will those crazy SyFy folks think up next?

OW.


Good Lord; he's lucky he wasn't killed. Poor guy. An injury like that could take a long time to recover from. I hope he's better soon.

Yeah, he's very lucky. Given the massive blood loss it sounds like one of the bone fragments cut into his femoral artery.

Sadly, this might delay the release of the much anticipated "Poseidon Rex".

I'll go ahead and start a rumor that the barge was partially submerged because Christopher Judge had slammed into it earlier on a wave-runner, accidentally ripping open the steel hull with his elbow, after which he swam to shore, popped open a Corona and addressed the worried crew, saying "I am uninjured. I believe the design of the barge to be defective."
