    Just occurred to me that I went swimming with stingrays in the Caymans. I'm not sure what a "stingray barb" is. Never really thought they could kill a person...

    i assume its the end of the tail (like a bee), if it touches u it stings which in itself is intensly painful and can paralyse but it can also stab u and pentrate poison in vital organs. the report was that it was in his chest so its likely it stabbed his chest cavity and put poison to his heart giving him a cardiac arrest.

    Default Steve 'Croc Hunter' Irwin Dies

    It's all in the article link. Not many details at the moment but he was struck in the heart by a stingray barb while filming off the Queensland coast so it looks like a freak accident, but given his habit of doing risky things with dangerous animals I guess it was only a matter of time before this happened.

    I refuse to believe this, we don't watch much TV and I know he bugged some people, but I really liked him and my kids loved him. I am seriously bummed if this is true.

    It's true I'm afraid - ALL over the Aussie TV as you can imagine. It looks like a freak accident when the barb of a stingray hit him in the chest and caused heart failure.

    I just read this on MSN and Im speechless. This is really really sad. But he was doing something he loved doing. I feel for his wife and children.
    He was the main reason for my son finding the love of animals especially snakes. He taught us all so much. I dont care what anyone says about this man he touched alot of lives.
    RIP Steve Irwin

    I just read it on msnbc.com. I am seriously fucking bummed. Very charismatic and extremely entertaining. I will miss his "Crikey Mate."

    I don't have any mod powers in this thread. Sorry. Just get in the habit of clicking the little box at the top of the reply field that checks to see if the story has already been posted. If it says no matches, you're good to go.
