We'll Miss Him, By Crikey

"Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, dead of an apparent stingray barb to the chest at age 44.

For those who were wondering how a stingray barb could kill someone, here's a picture of one that was removed from a turtle.

I am just getting off work and hearing about this. You on the other hand, have got the news out and props published already. Then again, I work from 6 to 6 ( the night shift). Thanks for the additional info on this story. I will miss him too!

Why do the good ones always die young? I took the title of a very famous book about JFK as the title of my tribute blog to Steve. I felt it was fitting.

From what I've heard/read, stingray "attacks" (stringrays not being aggresive creatures, only attacking when feeling threatened), are rarely fatal - usually, they are stepped on, or the victim doesn't take the barb directly in the heart. It is very sad to hear this news.

I found a page with more information on Steve and the news on his accident on the Discovery Channel.

What a huge loss for the world. The days go by and I still cannot believe that he is gone. I can only believe that GOD has a great plan for Steve, Terri, Bindi and Bob.
I will truly miss Steve Irwin. He was a great educator, a pioneer and a wonderful man. I hope that heaven was prepared

I'm glad he died that way. I don't even want to think about him dying in front of an audience in his zoo, with a bunch of children watching him being ripped apart by some stupid crocodile.
He know it was dangerous what he was doing. My heart goes out to his family
