On "Deadliest Catch" Sig Hansen decided to leave the opilio crab season early after his close friend was lost at sea. He appointed his little brother, Edgar Hansen, captain in his place.
When Sig Hansen learned of the lost crew, he was visibly upset. Hansen said,“I freaked out. I just lost one of my best friends.”
The captain had just dropped anchor off the island of St. Paul when he started having stabbing pains on the left side of his rib cage.
