The fortune hunters featured on "Bering Sea Gold" (Sun., 10 p.m. EST on Discovery) are a tough bunch, so when Shawn Pomrenke got injured in a bar brawl in Nome, Alaska he wasn't overly keen to seek medical attention.
Although his left hand had been sliced open and blood was pouring out, the dazed-looking co-owner of The Christine Rose didn't want to go to hospital. However, as the guys walked away from the bar, deckhand Cody Moen realized that Shawn's injuries might be much worse than they first thought.
"I looked and I seen his coat was all bloody in the back, and sure stuff he had a stab wound right in his back."
In Cody's opinion the guy who attacked Shawn in the bar did it out of jealousy and to create trouble for The Christine Rose. If Shawn was out of action, it could mean an early end to the season for the dredger.
"Bering Sea Gold" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on Discovery.
