    'Deadliest Catch' star Sig Hansen hospitalized


    "Deadliest Catch's" Captain Sig Hansen has been hospitalized, a rep for Discovery confirmed to FOX411.


    In a deleted post, his daughter shared a photo of her dad in the hospital. She wrote alongside the photo he had suffered a heart attack.

    "Capt survived the 'widowmaker'!! Beating a heart attack ain't easy. Welcome back boss," Mandy Marie Hansen wrote on Instagram.

    In a statement, Discovery said Hansen experienced chest pain during a taping of the show.

    "While Sig was determined to keep going, the crew acted swiftly and insisted that they dock to get him help. He was airlifted to Anchorage, Alaska, and immediately rushed to a medical facility. He is with his family and in good spirits," the statement read.

    Last year, "Deadliest Catch" star Tony Lara died of a heart attack while attending a motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D.

    The hit Discovery show premiered in 2005 and returns for season 12 in March.

    That was a cool show when it first came out. Those dudes live a hard fucking life that's for damn sure. Lots of substance abuse to stay awake and functional for that many hours. Not surprised they have so many health problems.

    The shit those guys do to earn a living is nuts. Shitty weather, no sleep, chain smoking and physical exhaustion. He may only be 49, but he's lived a hard ass life for most of those years.

    I would guess there's a lot of blow handed around to stay alert. Heart attack special

    Hopefully those guys don't do crank, though it would be logical, the way they work. Most of 'em smoke like chimneys. Get better Cap.

    Sig was my second favorite captain. My fave was Captain Phil, who passed a few years back. He was so cool, but lived on cigarettes, coffee and stress. Hope Sig is okay.

    A few years ago he had a mild heart attack while fishing during an episode. He just sat in the chair until it passed. The guy smokes like a chimney, is up for 30 hours at a clip and lives a very unhealthy life style. He looks 65 not 49. I am sure he is a multi millionaire by now, he should retire and enjoy the rest of his life.

    I have a friend who worked on a boat in Alaska. He said it's really hard work. He liked it but realized it would shorten his life. He came back to work for the Department of Sanitation. He helped clean up the Wotld Trade Center. Now his health isn't too good. Lots of jobs are pretty dangerous.
