Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin dead
September 04, 2006 02:14pm

He was killed in a freak accident in Cairns, police sources said. It is understood he was killed by a sting-ray barb that went through his chest.
He was swimming off the Low Isles at Port Douglas filming an underwater documentary and that's when it occured.

Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality this morning at Batt Reef off Port Douglas.

I have death wishes on Lucas and Macullum.
we could all probably get 10s of thousands of dollars!

This is so CREEPY!! I was driving to work right now, with the radio off, and sometimes I tend to speak with myself and do accents for fun (I'm not mentally sane, I guess), and I was doing an impression of him, saying with a bad australian accent "Now I'm going to lock that dangerous crocodile with my feet while I hold my baby child with one hand, pointing a loaded gun to his head with the other... BANG! Crankey!!", and when I get here, I find out he's DEAD!

This is not the first time something like that has happened with me... This is really creepy...

Crankey?! LOL! It's 'crikey'!

I nearly went postal hearing everyone mention it as they left the carpark today. Almost everyone is going to the pub to drink to him.

Of all of God's creatures, he had to go out like a punk to the humble stingray. Surely he could have died at the hands of a dinosaur or something...Ironic? Maybe. It is sad though, a day after Father's Day a child is orphaned, and by gosh, he'll have a lot of videos to watch when he's older - of his father nearly getting killed all the time.

Australian tourism will probably never be the same again. And Americans will have to come up with someone else to bug Australians about.

My mistake. I've never seen that word written before.

Two children.. they're not orphaned though...

It is ironic... I guess I should say something nice about him... um... he valued animal life (but not human life)... no... um, he was an entertainer (with no self-respect)... no... he was a good father... hmm... no... he was a father... um,... I know... he was a beautiful baby.

And I think that whole baby thing was way overblown. He knew what he was doing and the baby was in no danger.

Nah, a croc could never have gotten Steve. He was too good for that. I bet the only animal that could have gotten Steve would be a sea creature.

I'm very saddened by this news (first read it on the IMDb) and my thoughts go out to his family and friends and thier time of grieving. There have only been a handful of people as brave as Steve, and it's very sad that we'll never see him wrangle a croc again.
Watch DarthEvil's Who Framed Darth Vader? video on YouTube!

Sad news indeed. I always said the guy was crazy, but I never thought I'd be reading his obituary on the internet.

And isn't irony bitter--risking his life all the time with snakes and crocodiles only to have it taken by a stingray.

I didn't watch the show that much, but the man had talent and was always a good source of clean entertainment. All my thoughts go out to his wife and two kids. May they find piece during this hard time.

Rest in Peace, Steve Irwin. You will be missed.
I'd like a qui-gon jinn please with an Obi-Wan to go.

Red heads ROCK. Blondes do not rock. Nuff said.

He really died unlike no other. I've really never heard of a person dying this way.

Marine neuroscientist Shaun Collin said " It was extraordinarily bad luck. It's not easy to get spined by a stingray and to be killed by one is very rare."

P.S. It is kinda of wierd, that after messing with all these deadly animals, the one thing that kills him is the least likely.

Only 17 people haven been recorded of dying because of them. 18 if you count him.

I dunno man... Everyone keeps saying 'of all the things to kill him it was a stingray' as if he went out like some kind of punk. But it's not like he was killed by a garden snail, it was a friggin' stingray! He got stung in the chest by a stingray, man!!
