Shattered Leg, Extreme Blood Loss

Corin Nemec -- star of the '90s sitcom "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" -- is recovering from emergency surgery ... after he shattered his leg and lost TONS of blood in a bad boating accident this weekend.

Nemec says he was on board a Coast Guard vessel in Belize on Saturday morning -- on his way to shoot a scene for a movie -- when the boat crashed into a semi-submerged barge.

Nemec claims he suffered major injuries in the wreck -- and was transported to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery.

The actor -- who was working on the SyFy movie "Poseidon Rex" -- told a local news reporter, "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."

41-year-old Nemec says the break was so bad, he lost over half the blood in his body -- and he required multiple blood transfusions to save his life.

"Everybody onboard that boat, including the gentlemen working for the Coast Guard, everyone is lucky to be alive," Nemec said.

"Jonas, why are you smiling?"

"It's just...this is the first time I've shattered my leg and nearly died from blood loss." *grin*

I couldn't help myself. =P I'm really glad the actor's okay, though! O_O

Awe, poor Corin, hope he gets better soon. I'm following him on twitter so I've sent him a tweet, he might not respond or even if he does it might not be for awhile, but thought I'd send one anyway.

Here's a good article on it, with more details. Nothing on the other folks injured and nothing on IMDB either on rest of cast.

Full details at http://7newsbelize.com/sstory.php?nid=24537

He's got a twitter account at @imcorinnemec so perhaps messages of support can be left there.

I've seen Peter DeLuise, Peter Williams and Cliff Simon tweet about the news today, too.

I saw this on TMZ and recognized the name. It’s really awful and I hope that he will get better soon.

Yes, this sounds like a really bad accident, I'm just so glad that Corin is making a good recovery from it.

I too wish him the best! I saw the Gateworld news post and was hoping this was an update, but will wish him well here as I'm not on Twitter.

This was posted today by the Oz Comic Con twitter site (@OzComicCon):
A sad guest update,as we previously announced Corin Nemec was in a serious accident on the set of his latest film. He has recently advised..
..us that whilst he is in high spirits and working hard on recover, he will be in rehab for at least another 12 weeks.
As such he will be unable to join us for Oz Comic-Con Perth Adelaide...

Yikes! Pray he has a speedy recovery.

February 11th, 2013, 11:04 AM
I would imagine he'll have to cancel his appearance at Chevron too, which is such a shame. I've never met him, and was so looking forward to doing so! But his recovery must always come first, and after such a serious accident, it's just a Godsend that he's going to be alright.

Hang tough, Corin. Will pray for you. Hope you heal quickly.

February 16th, 2013, 02:07 PM
My prayers are for you Mr. Nemec. Always hope for the best it could have been alot worse. I read this article when i was at work, i was glad to here that he was injured and not dead. blunt and to the point.
