ANCHORAGE — The U.S. Coast Guard says rescuers flew a 'Deadliest Catch' crew member to a remote clinic in Alaska after he collapsed and showed signs of shock and dehydration on board a fishing vessel in the Bering Sea.

The agency didn't identify the 28-year-old man but says he's a crew member of the 150-foot Wizard, part of the popular Discovery Channel show, which didn't immediately provide information.

Coast Guard officials say a helicopter crew flew the man Monday afternoon to a clinic in the Alaska Peninsula community of Cold Bay, 60 miles to the south. He was then flown to an Anchorage hospital.

Waves were only about 3 feet high when he fell ill. The National Weather Service says it occurred before the arrival of a huge storm brewing in the Bering Sea.
