Unhappy Stingray kills 'Crocodile Hunter' - Steve Irwin

Stingray kills 'Crocodile Hunter' - Steve Irwin



SYDNEY, Australia (CNN) -- Steve Irwin, the Australian TV presenter known as the "Crocodile Hunter," has died after being stung in a marine accident off Australia's north coast.

Australian media reports say Irwin was diving in waters off Port Douglas, north of Cairns, when the incident happened on Monday morning.

Irwin, 44 was killed by a stingray barb that went through his chest, according to Cairns police sources. Irwin was filming an underwater documentary at the time.

Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality Monday morning off Port Douglas, according to Australian media.

Queensland Police Services also confirmed Irwin's death and said his family had been notified. Irwin was director of the Australian Zoo in Queensland.

He is survived by his American-born wife Terri and their two children, Bindi Sue, born 1998, and Robert (Bob), born December 2003.

Irwin became a popular figure on Australian and international television through Irwin's close handling of wildlife, most notably the capture and relocation of crocodiles.

Irwin's enthusiastic approach to nature conservation and the environment won him a global following. He was known for his exuberance and use of the catch phrase "Crikey!"

But his image suffered a setback in January 2004 when he held his then 1-month-old baby Bob while feeding a crocodile at his Australian zoo. (Full story)

In a statement released to Australian media, Foreign Minister Alexander Downer expressed his sorrow and said that he was fond of Irwin and was very appreciative of all the work he had done in promoting Australia overseas.

In 2003, Irwin spoke to the Australian Broadcasting Corp.'s Australian Story television program about how he was perceived in his home country.

"When I see what's happened all over the world, they're looking at me as this very popular, wildlife warrior Australian bloke," he said, the ABC reported.

"And yet back here in my own country, some people find me a little bit embarrassing. "You know, there's this... they kind of cringe, you know, 'cause I'm coming out with 'Crikey' and 'Look at this beauty.'"

very sad accident.... Steve Irwin aka 'Croc Hunter' was a great person who loved the wild nature and animals... He became famous for his typical australian accent and for his association with Crocodiles... I enjoyed his show 'The Croc Files' a lot on discovery and animal planet... he even discovered a few new species during his amazing career...

May his soul rest in peace... RIP...

Its really sad but one question comes into my mind, whether animal rebel when some one encroaches their territory? Look what happened to Timothy Treadwell the Grizzly man.

Re: Stingray kills 'Crocodile Hunter' - Steve Irwin

RIP .. sad news... RIP.


One question - When you have it all, why do you end up doing non-sense?
For example, Christopher Reeves. He had it all, but he had to go horse riding or horse jumping. What happened? Broke his spine and finally died!
Suddenly some folks think they can do a lot for which they are really not trained. Same case with JFK Junior. Had to fly a plane in bad weather as if he was a veteran Jumbo Jet pilot. End result? Dead!

Re: Stingray kills 'Crocodile Hunter' - Steve Irwin

It was a freak accident. The last recorded person in Oz who was killed by a stingray was back in 1945! That's over 60 years ago.

This was his passion ... only thing he knew ... loved and enjoyed it ... personally entertained visitors to his wild life park. His father carried him in his arms ... just as he carried his young daughter Bindi in to the crocodile den.

What you saw on screen is what he was like in person ... no acting and no make believe.
