The Crocodile Hunter is Dead

Steve Irwin 44 years of age, the Crocodile Hunter just recently died from a stingray barb to his chest while doing a documentary at the Great Barrier Reef off Australia’s northeast coast.

Witnesses said he apparently died of cardiac arrest after the stingray attack.

Mr. Irwin was on location in the area to film television segments, including material for “The Ocean’s Deadliest.” Witnesses on his boat, Croc One, and on a nearby diving vessel said that when he came close to a stingray, its barb pierced his chest and lodged in his heart.

This is a very tragic news to those people who loved his work. And not to mention his family with two so very young kids.

Boy am I going to miss his Australian Accent.
