Mitchell Guist, Swamp People Star, Dies from Boat Fall

by at . Comments

Mitchell Guist, one of the stars of Swamp People on the History Channel, died this morning from injuries suffered during a fall off his boat.

Authorities tell WBRW.com the accident occurred around 9 a.m. along the Belle River in Louisiana.

Attempts to perform CPR on Mitchell - who appeared on Swamp People along with his brother, Glenn, and hunted alligators on the program - were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at a local hospital not long after the boat returned to shore.

No reason for the accident or cause of death has been reported, though onlookers say Guist appeared to suffer a seizure.

"We are extremely saddened to report that our friend and beloved member of the Swamp People family, Mitchell Guist, has passed away earlier today. Mitchell passed on the swamp, doing what he loved," a rep for the History Channel said in a statement.

Yes, some of you need to actually read the Bible. Also, pick up a dictionary while you're at it and brush up on some spelling and how some some words are actually used.

Clearly you have no earthly idea what you are talking about. But hey look at it this way the rest of the United States Of America is laughing hysterically at you!!!!!! Pick up a free copy of the King James bible and read it before you starve to death or suffer any more heartache over lost family members living in GODS animals....
