Deadliest Catch captain sued for boating/fall accident

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that Jon Moreno has filed a personal injury lawsuit against captain Sig Hansen, the skipper of the fishing crew in Discovery Channel’s popular show “Deadliest Catch.” Moreno claims that he was injured during Seattle’s Seafair festival when he boarded Hansen’s boat with others and was hoisted above the water by a crane and dropped into the water.

Moreno fell from the crane and broke his pelvis and suffered other injuries.

Moreno’s lawsuit asks for damages to cover medical and legal expenses and loss of work. Hansen Enterprises Inc., and Hansen himself are defendants in the suit.
