Corin Nemec - Corin Nemec Lucky To Be Alive After Boating Accident

Actor Corin Nemec is lucky to be alive following a serious boating accident in Belize.

The 41 year old, who played the titular character on U.S. Tv series Parker Lewis Can't Lose, was travelling with a film crew to the set of his new movie Poseidon Rex when their Coast Guard vessel struck a semi-submerged barge on Saturday morning (19Jan13).

Nemec, who was thrown from the boat, was then rushed to the Medical Associate's Hospital for emergency surgery after losing over half the blood in his body and breaking his leg in three places.

He tells local station 7 News Belize, "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. It was the doctor here on call, who has been amazing, Doctor Smith, he said that it's the worst break that he's had to deal with. And I lost over half of the blood in my body during they trauma, and during the operation, and I still don't have the right blood count yet...

"The whole event was very scary. Everybody onboard that boat, including the gentlemen working for the Coast Guard, everyone is lucky to be alive... It was one of the first times in my life where I actually didn't think I was going to survive something. The one thing (that) was probably (the) most scary is that none of us were equipped with life vests. None of us were given life vests when we were on the boats any of the days when we were travelling."

The incident is currently under investigation.
