Kris Kelly cannot catch a break on Bering Sea Gold for Discovery this season.
In TV Shows Ace exclusive clip for tonight’s insane episode, the Kellys have no luck of the Irish as our clip opens with Kris Kelly diving underwater and pretty excited about what he sees, and his dad Brad up above monitoring the situation.
Suddenly, fortunes change. A fire is spotted as the cameraman picks up smoke coming out of the shed.
The entire wooden structure is soon engulfed and Brad is visibly frantic to get his son up fast, as Kris Kelly’s air supply will run out as the hoses melt from the fire.

In the clip we see father Brad Kelly, the patriarch of the Kelly family who has been part of the series since Season 2 which began back in 2012. His sons are miner Kris and Andy Kelly. Andy is also a diver. Kris Kelly is the one underwater in tonight’s episode.
