THE Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, is dead.
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.

Thats what I thought too. It's sad that we know he's dead before even his wife. It is awful what happened but, when you watched his show and how damn crazy he was is it really that surprising? Steve died doing what he loved and I wish his family and children the best.

He was filming a new doco called 'Deadly Sea Creatures' when the stingray felt threatened and stabbed him.

It's still not know exactly where it stabbed him, but a friend said he died instantly. Paramedics were flown out to the reef and tried to resuscitate him for about half an hour but were unable to.

Damn. I was so shocked when I heard this I nearly drove off the road from looking at my radio as if it was going to give me a visual answer.

Yeah, I honestly believe he was just out of his element. He knew crocs so well but when he get in this environment (the ocean) he didn't understand the animal's behavior as well. Hate to hear it.

He leaves behind a American wife a daughter and a son.

He was killed by a Singray while filming about the Great Barrier Reef. He was apparently stuck in the chest. Speculation is that the veom penertarated his heart causing his loss of life.

Stingrays have flat bodies and tails with serrated spines, which contain venom and can cause cuts and puncture wounds. The creatures are not aggressive and injury usually occurs when a swimmer or diver accidentally steps on one.

His loss will be felt by many in Australia, because he employed hundreds, in His "Australia Zoo" which is one of, if not the #1 tourist destination in Austuralia.

i don't feel sorry, i feel sad it happened, but the best thing is they all died doing what they loved most, so i never feel sorry.

to me it's like dying while making love, yes it's sad you died, but it was doing something you liked doing, that's life (or the end of it, in this case).

so if i had my choice, i rather go doing something i liked than, say in a fire, or an airplane accident, etc.

it surprises me sometimes that people deliberatly post in the wrong forum...how do YOU guys view F/H ? "I" view almost exclusivly the "new posts" page. That being the case, if a thread has any merit, it gets posted in and stays "fresh" on the first page. I have never really seen advantage to posting in the wrong forum.

Am I the only one who views like this?

personally, I feel if someone deliberately posts in the wrong forum the mods should "lock" the thread up to punish the offender. I feel if this was adopted, bad posts would greatly diminish...after all, they are looking for "exposure" take it away and they will fall into line without points.

It's very shocking to hear. I guess if he had one way to leave this earth, it would be animal related. He was so passionate about teaching us the ways of these animals, it's what he loved to do.

It is shocking just as Dale Earnhardt, Korey Stringer, and Owen Hart. For me, just b/c the death occurs in these mens natural sports doesnt make it any less sad.

A selection of quotes from television star and wildlife enthusiast Steve Irwin, who died Monday after being fatally stabbed in the chest with a stingray's barb:
_ "Crikey!" — his catch phrase, exclaimed repeatedly during his television show whenever something interesting happens.
_ "I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I'm just fine with that."


"I have no fear of losing my life — if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it."

How ironic :(

maybe, but the necrosis from the poison might have got him anyway. I read a report posted yesterday of another person who had a similar wound. They died six days later due to tissue destruction. A very sad affair, excepting that it was quick and relatively painless ( as opposed to what I thought would be the way he would go...croc or snake)

My first thought. It couldn't have helped, him removing it. But I imagine he was in quite a bit of shock. With 3 hours of travel to a Cairns hospital, he was in trouble regardless of him removing it, or whatever resuscitation efforts his crew made.

The barbs can be almost a foot long in large rays. And if the first-hand accounts of it peircing the heart are accurate, he was a goner, no matter what he or they did. Even the medi-vac chopper guys at Low Isle couldn't help. They were the ones who declared the death I think I read too.

Ok, we can't rewind, he is dead. I feel bad for his wife and children.

The bright side is that his children can say their father was killed by a poison barb to the heart from a stingray. That is a much better story than getting run over by a bus on the way to his coffee break.


:confused: A better story? I'm sure the kids are worried about a better story, please!:shakeno:

If you want to say he died doing what he loved, okay, but don't go the better story route, the kids lost a father that was a big part of there life.

I think those kids have enough cool stories about their pops to last 10 generations. And good for them. Maybe they'll get into the family business.

I read today that, he always said that if he ever was attacked and killed, that he wanted the cameras to continue rolling and that he wanted his death shown just as it happened.

So, one day, this is going to be on television.

/me will watch

last night on the news they said the tape was in the hands of the police and it was unlikely the tape would be seen by any others

There's no forseeable reason in my mind as to why the police have the tape, they need to let it go and let a network show this late at night.

He wanted it and i'm sure, although it might be fairly sad to watch, that many people will want to see it.

Its amazing how its been this long and i still cant get over Steve being dead. I wasnt even that big of a Croc Hunter fan,always liked Irwin tho.

Maybe its just so suprising because he seemed invincible.

Storm breaks over attack on Irwin


Comments by academic Germaine Greer on the death of wildlife TV star Steve Irwin have triggered a storm of anger with the Australian author criticized for being "insensitive" and "elitist."

Greer, best known for her feminist book "The Female Eunuch", said Wednesday Irwin was an "embarrassment" and a "self-deluded animal torturer."

Irwin, who gained international fame for his "Crocodile Hunter" TV series, was killed Monday by a stingray barb while filming a wildlife documentary.

Speaking on Australian TV Channel Nine's "A Current Affair" news program Wednesday, Greer described those who mourned Irwin's passing as "idiots" and said possibly millions of Australians were embarrassed by him.

Greer said Irwin had not treated animals with the respect they deserved.
"He would tell you how dangerous they were and he would proceed to intrude on their space and humiliate (them) really -- treat them with massive insensitivity," she said. "It's no surprise he came to grief."

Greer's views, first aired in Britain's Guardian newspaper on Tuesday, have drawn a sharp response in Australia from politicians and commentators.
Queensland state leader Peter Beattie told Greer to "back off" and labeled her comments "stupid" and "insensitive."

"Germaine Greer is just wrong and I just can't imagine anyone being more insensitive and, frankly, stupid," he said Thursday.

"This argument is just extreme radical rubbish from Germaine Greer and it couldn't come at a more insensitive time.

"Any suggestion that he (Irwin) mistreated animals is just rubbish ... he educated a generation."
