Corin Nemec in Near Fatal Boat Accident

Best wishes for a full recovery to Corin, who played Jonas Quinn on Stargate SG-1.  

He's in Belize to film his crazy SyFy movie "Poseidon Rex", and the Belize Coat Guard boat ferrying him to location collided with a sinking barge! His femur broke in 3 places & he lost MASSIVE amounts of blood, but he's now still in the hospital waiting for his blood count to go back up after multiple transfusions and major surgery.

The circumstances of the accident point to gross negligence of boating safety by the Belizean Coast Guard ferrying him & his crew to location; Corin asked at the outset of the trip why there were no lifejackets provided to him and his crew PLUS the boat was going too fast when it collided PLUS the pilot didn't see the half-submerged barge. We'll probably know a bit more as the story develops.
