Commercial Fishing Ranked Most Dangerous Job

You can encounter danger almost anywhere, but according to the Bureau of Labor commercial fishermen are in the thick of it.

That profession, common in our local port cities, has been ranked the most dangerous in America. The Bureau of Labor says sinking ships, unlucky spills and even falling overboard make fishing so dangerous.

Most of those accidents occur off the coast of Alaska where the majority of fishing is done, and the bureau says men are the most likely victims.
