A boat featured on Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove" capsized and killed three crew members on Tuesday night, TMZ reported.

A second body washed ashore and a third was found trapped on the boat, CBS News reports.

There were reportedly no other crew members aboard the Mary B II, a commercial crab boat that was featured in the 2016 series Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove, which explored the dangers of crabbing boats crossing the Yaquina Bay bar. None of the men who died appeared on the Discovery show.

James Lacey, 48, of South Toms River, New Jersey, was found in the water and taken to Pacific Communities Hospital in Newport, Oregon, where he was pronounced dead.

In a press release promoting the show Discovery wrote: "Newport, Oregon is one of the last remaining fishing towns along the edge of the notoriously violent 'Graveyard of the Pacific" that stretches from Oregon to British Columbia.

"Unfortunately, we were not able to recover them".

'Here, generations of Dungeness crab fishermen and their families sacrifice everything that they have, including life itself, to carve an existence from the sea. Unfortunately, it was just a tragedy outcome and our hearts and thoughts are with the family and friends of the crew'.

The fatal incident occurred after the fishermen requested the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) assist them in crossing the Yaquina Bay bar shortly before 10 p.m.
