Discovery has released a statement following the tragic news that a Dungeness crab fishing boat featured on Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove was involved in a fatal accident Tuesday night.

The skipper, Stephen Biernacki, 50, was found in the boat and pronounced dead at the scene.

The US Coast Guard say the vessel was crossing the risky Yaquina Bay bar in 14 foot waves on Tuesday night when the tragedy unfolded.

James Lacey, 48, of South Toms River, New Jersey, was found in the water and taken to Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport, Oregon, where he was pronounced dead.

The Coast Guard has so far been able to recover two of the three bodies.

At 12.28am, Newport Fire Department found Joshua Porter, 50, dead on a beach near Nye Beach.

At 10:13 p.m., authorities got word that the boat "had capsized with three people onboard", police said.

The Coast Guard tweeted a photo of their rescue efforts, confirming, "Vessel sank under its own power while being escorted by a Coast Guard boat crew".

"Located within a mile from shore, this treacherous stretch of water is closely monitored by the Coast Guard", the promo says.

A promo for Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove describes the Newport bar as a unsafe obstacle crab fishermen must cross in order to get back to port after a day of fishing.

"This bar could be terrifying", one fisherman says, with another adding, "That bar'll kill you".
