    Steve Irwin - Crocodile Hunter dies.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14663786/?GT1=8506

    CAIRNS, Australia - Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and conservationist known as the “Crocodile Hunter,” was killed Monday by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef. He was 44
    Wow, just... wow. I think everybody on the planet knew this guy. And we all thought he was crazy, but I never imagined him dying doing that crazy stuff.
    Bet he gets reincarnated as a croc now...

    Wikipedia has the exact details.

    Interesting article on Stingray 'attacks' if anyone is interested.

    I find it ironic that the very documentary that he was filming when the accident took place was to be called Ocean's Deadliest. I think that now whenever I eat stringray, I will remember him, and that even experts are not immune to the vagaries of nature.

    I've never known Wikipedia to be inaccurate.

    I doubt it. I don't think there were any paparazzi down there with him. It's a matter of whether or not the studio plans on releasing it, I don't think they'll do that within a few hours, if they do it at all.

    Having watched a few of his documentaries I'm not suprised. He's practically cuddling and wrestling with them gators and other critters. I even recall him falling into a pool once (got up alive though).

    This was a freak accident. The stringray flexed and his chest
    was there.

    The news just there said that this was the 3rd incident where a sting ray has killed someone. Kinda ironic, eh? Having jumped Crocks, sharks, having kissed tigers etc, defensive creature killed him.

    Why are you hiding text in your posts Twomers?
