Commercial fishing. Seems someone loses their life yearly in that profession. PNW has had it's share of souls lost. Sad.

Commercial fishing is one of the most dangerous professions there are.

About 3-4 times a year we get something like the below - that's only Tampa.

Just one of those reminders that the sea demands respect. He probably fell overboard helping the dog back in and that was that. Very sad for all.

Men falling overboard while peeing seems to a regular occurrence as well - or so I'm told by the Coast Guard.
