The Parker
Moment On Gold
Rush That
Went Too Far
It is understandable one would feel the need to cut loose a little bit when you're out on a mining site for weeks on end. Still, you probably want to avoid any activities that could put anyone in your crew out of commission and Parker Schnabel learned that the hard way in "Gold Rush" Season 9.
He and Mitch Blaschke went on a jet boat ride to have a little fun between expeditions, and they wound up in a pretty nasty crash in the process. Unfortunately, Blaschke broke one of his arms, meaning he had to go home early, unable to complete the job.
Schnabel blamed himself for what happened to Blaschke, and he was incredibly apologetic when he went to check in with him. Blaschke maintained a positive mindset, insisting that it could've been a lot worse. Luckily, a broken arm can be healed, but, hopefully, Schnabel learned a lesson about engaging in potentially hazardous activities in the middle of a job.
