Initial reports stated the vessel was featured on Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove", which chronicles the dangers of catching crabs in the area, but "Extra" has confirmed it was not.

TMZ reports that the U.S. Coast Guard was escorting the Mary B II commercial crab boat off the coast of OR when the boat flipped over in rough seas.

The Mary B II asked for a Coast Guard escort while crossing the bar, when the three fisherman went into the water.

The 42-foot boat vessel - thought to have been featured on the Discovery show - was spotted capsized at the entrance point of the two jetties.

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.

Oregon State Police say skipper Stephen Biernacki, 50, of Barnegat Township, New Jersey was pronounced dead at the scene.

'Unfortunately, we were not able to recover them.

"Thousands of vessels and lives have been lost while battling the seas in what's considered the deadliest commercial fishery in the world". Unfortunately, it was just a tragedy outcome and our hearts and thoughts are with the family and friends of the crew'. Deadliest Catch is a popular Discovery TV series.

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.
