Corin Nemec injured in horrific boating accident

While he is going to be fine in time, this type of news is the type we hate to report.

According to TMZ, actor Corin Nemec — who portrayed “Jonas Quinn”, the Kelownan scientist from Langara and eventual SG-1 team member in Season Six of the series — is recovering from emergency surgery after shattering his leg in multiple places in a boating accident this past weekend.  Nemec, who was in Belize shooting a film (presumably a production headed for Syfy) called Poseidon Rex, was on board a Coast Guard vessel that crashed violently into a partially submerged barge.

“We hit the sinking barge … with an enormous amount of force,” Nemec told a local reporter in Belize. “[And] that threw me into the side of the boat where I shattered my femur in three places.”

Nemec reportedly lost massive quantities of blood, over half of what was in his body.  He was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency surgery and required multiple blood transfusions before finally stabilizing.

“Everyone on board that boat, including the gentlemen working for the Coast Guard … everyone is lucky to be alive,” Nemec said.

While the actor recuperates, you can send him your well-wishes for a speedy recovery on Twitter at @iamcorinnemec.

  • My goodness. Glad he’s doing okay now and hope him the best in his recovery. That sounds more painful than i care to imagine…

  • I am so glad he is okay! Hope for a quick, struggle-free recovery

  • Along with everyone else, I am glad to hear he will eventually recover! This was a bit shocking to hear.

  • hope your recovery is as speedy as walking through the stargate! :-)

  • I hope he’s going to be OK, one problem with those kinds of injuries is clots forming.

  • Get well, Corin.

    (Didn’t Sciffy- on that anniversary special- call Creature Feature Night “the most dangerous night on television”? Oy…)
