    Don't think there have been too many stingray deaths, this is terrible, he was definitely one of the Good Guys...prayers for his wife and kids...he was one of a kind. A great kind.

    thank you, Reptillycus.

    You know, we're all here because we love to talk about celebrity, and to trash on them and make fun, but sometimes, there are some people on TV who, even if you find them annoying, were out there doing some good. He wasn't perfect, I know some people found his schtick silly, but at least he was making people aware of these animals, their plights or whatever. He didn't come out with some bogus CD, or create an animal world war or do something stupid to get noticed. He just was his silly animal loving self.

    I hardly watched his show, but I know who he was...I'm still waiting for them to say this didn't happen...

    Well, I am very sad to hear about this, though I always thought it was one of the crocodiles that would get him, not a stingray. He was a little foolhardy at times but nobody can deny his enthusiasm and sincerity. My heart goes out to his family.

    It's being reported as a freak accident. If the stingray barb had hit him anywhere else on his body he'd probably be OK but it just so happened to pierce his heart. A chance in a million, and a lot less likely than being killed by one of the mean mofo snakes, crocs etc he so loved, and so this is doubly sad. Yes, he could be irritating but he was passionate about his cause and he has left a young widow with two small children. I guess the only shred of comfort is the knowledge that he died doing what he loved best.

    This is without doubt one of the most upsetting things I have heard this year.

    I am not a huge fan of wild life but I always found myself unable to switch channel whenever Steve Irwin came on. He was unreservedly fascinating. Such a seemingly genuine man with a loving family and successful career.

    I am predominantly astounded by the manner in which he passed away. I too assumed he would be decapitated by an agitated crocodile, or strangled by an exasperated python. But for him to have been stung in his heart by a passing stingray is just totally ill fated.

    Rest in Peace Steve. I am sure you will be sadly missed by many.

    On the Today show they said there were only 17 reported stingray deaths worldwide. RIP Steve Irwin. So sad for Terri and their children.

    I feel really, really bad about this. His poor wife and kids. I never thought this would happen.

    Everyone from everywhere knows what happened to Steve and I live in Cairns and never heard a thing till I got on gossiprocks? What a shock. I cant beleive he is lying in the Cairns Hospital morgue . I bet its not really him. He was too big and full of life to let a dumb stingray get him. Cant be true.

    I just learned this sad news a few minutes ago and I'm literally stunned by it. I, too, thought this man was invincable. I can't imagine his poor wife getting that phone call and pray to God his daughter wasn't anywhere near the filming.

    It's just so hard to fathom. Who would have expected that a stingray would take his life?

    RIP Steve. You will be greatly missed.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA stupid fucking retard! That's what you get for pissing off dangerous animals!

    Idiot. It was only a matter of time. Personally I was hoping some alligator would snap his annoying head off, but I'll take this.

    I bet his baby is glad he wont be holding her in his arms while he feeds crocs anymore.

    Steve Irwin came across as a good and decent human being. A small consolation, but he died doing what he loved best. Sending prayers to his family!
