'Deadliest Catch' captain suffers gruesome belly-button injury

On Tuesday’s episode of ‘Deadliest Catch,’ Captain Keith Colburn’s season came to a gruesome and early end. The skipper of the Wizard was forced to leave his ship due to an umbilical hernia. The hernia, caused by his intestines seeping through his abdominal wall, are not only painful, they’re also dangerous. The hernia can result in bowel obstruction and infection in his abdomen. Colburn decided to dock his ship in St. Paul island and fly home for emergency surgery. Hopefully he will recover as well as he did in 2018, when he missed the majority of the season due to a bacterial infection in his spine.
