After watching Below Deck this week, Ashton Pienaar seemed lucky to be alive. I went on an emotional rollercoaster simply watching the accident that forced him overboard. I can’t even imagine how scared he must have been. Thank goodness he is safe and is beginning his healing process.

Captain Lee Rosbach was emotional as he explained, “We were within 30 seconds of him dying. I’d have to call his parents and tell them their son is dead and I’m responsible. I don’t know how to deal with that. I have kids. And I don’t know how I’d make that call.”

Because the internet is the internet, people started forming conspiracy theories…

I appreciate good ole Captain Lee coming out with a statement about the incident.

Camera Man Brent= A fine example that not all heroes wear capes. I hope Brent gets all good karma in his future.

What swam through your mind as you watched Ashton plunge into the water? Did you think it looked staged? Was I the only emotional wreck while watching? Please tell me your thoughts down under.
