Crab Fisherman Nick McGlashan died of a drug overdose – If you know someone struggling, help them!

Nick McGlashan came from a long line of fishermen, and started plying his dangerous trade at the young age of 13. The hard-working crabber appeared in “Deadliest Catch” from 2013 to 2020. McGlashan struggled with alcohol and drug addiction, which got so bad during the shooting of the show’s season 13 that his captain had to fire him. In a 2017 interview, the crabber said that he took this extremely hard. “All I ever wanted to do was be a fisherman, and I lost that,” McGlashan said. “I lost the ability to work at sea because I forgot how to live on land.” >click to read< 11:38
