'Deadliest Catch': After Mysterious Illness, Chris Is Airlifted From The Wizard

Both the crew of the Wizard and fans of "Deadliest Catch" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Discovery) were immediately on the edges of their seats with worry when Greenhorn Chris fell victim to some kind of fit, or perhaps a seizure. This week, with his condition still problematic, they had him airlifted by the Coast Guard from the ship and taken to a hospital.

It was clear that Chris was still in bad shape, as he was unable to lower his arms when asked to during the evacuation. The crewman was clearly crushed by what was happening, apologizing to Captain Keith. But Keith rightly told him he had nothing to apologize for. He did what he could and did the best he could under the circumstances. What more could be asked of him.

As for what's wrong with Chris, that's a cliffhanger fans will have to wait until next week to find out about. But everyone was in agreement that it was great to see the crew come together so professionally and calmly to help get Chris off of that ship and toward the help he needed.

Find out what's going on with Chris as "Deadliest Catch" continues Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery.
