How sad...

Steve Irwin, known as the Crocodile Hunter, died today (September 4th in Australia). News reports only say that he was struck by a sting ray barb in his chest while filming off the cost of Australia.

As of the latest reports, his wife is off on a trip and has not yet been informed.

Sad... This is why I will be staying away from nature.

So sad. I just heard it was probably an instant death - he most likely never knew... so he was happy doing what he loved.

This was very sad and ironic news. Of all things to die from, he dies from a sting ray? Not a croc, but a sting ray. Which is very rare that you hear of someone dying from a sting ray. I was in shock and denial when I heard the news. Crikey!
