The ‘Deadliest Catch’ fishing boat somehow got entangled in geopolitics, after Russia launched a missile almost immediately after a nearby vessel had a run-in with a Russian fishing boat.
The video is crazy… the crew of DC’s Time Bandit was sailing off the coast of Alaska, when someone shouted to look up at the sun. Sure enough, they saw a missile fire into the sky as clearly as in broad daylight.
Apparently another ship called Wizard had a run-in with a Russian fishing boat near the US-Russian border. The crews of each boat exchanged words before the Wizard people told the Russian crew to hurry up.
During the round trips, the Time Bandit was called in for backup. The Russian ship finally retreated… when suddenly things took a frightening turn.
You hear someone from the Time Bandit crew yelling, “Did Russia fire a missile, man?”
Someone responds… “It’s falling on us, Captain!”
