  • Just Inned: Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, just died



    By REUTERS
    Published: September 4, 2006
    SYDNEY, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Steve Irwin, the quirky Australian naturalist who won worldwide acclaim, was killed by a stingray barb through the chest on Monday while diving off Australia's northeast coast, emergency officials and witnesses said.

    Steve Irwin's television program, "Crocodile Hunter," has aired around the world.



    "Steve was hit by a stingray in the chest," said local diving operator Steve Edmondson, whose Poseidon boats were out on the Great Barrier Reef when the accident occurred.
    "He probably died from a cardiac arrest from the injury," he said.
    Police and ambulance officials later confirmed Irwin had died and said his family had been advised.
    Irwin, 44, was killed while filming an underwater documentary off Port Douglas.
    Irwin had been diving off his boat "Croc One" near Batt Reef northeast of Port Douglas. A helicopter had taken paramedics to nearby Low Isles where Irwin was taken for medical treatment but he was dead before they arrived, police said.
    Irwin won a global following for his dare-devil antics but also triggered outrage in 2004 by holding his then one-month-old baby while feeding a snapping crocodile at his Australian zoo.
    He made almost 50 of his "Crocodile Hunter" documentaries which appeared on cable TV channel Animal Planet and won a worldwide audience.
    The series ended after he was criticised for the incident with his young son and for disturbing whales, seals and penguins while filming in Antarctica.
    Khaki-clad Irwin became famous for his seemingly death-defying methods with wild animals, including crocodiles and snakes.
    He made a cameo appearance alongside Eddie Murphy in the 2001 Hollywood film Dr Dolittle 2 and appeared on U.S. television shows such as "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and on children's television alongside The Wiggles.
    Irwin was married with two children, Bindi Sue and Bob Clarence. His American-born wife Terri was his business partner and frequent on-screen collaborator.

    I remember watching him. I feel bad for the guy. I mean, he will stick his head down an alligator's throat, but he gets killed buy a small stingray.

          Shocking and sad. This was obviously a man who enjoyed life. He deserved more of it.
          "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

            I had looked forward to many more years of watching his films. It's too bad his life was cut short. Mutual of Omaja Wild Kingdom host and naturalist Marlin Perkins looked and acted like a corps on his show for years. But, Steve was a crazy livewire that inspired the common person to take notice of the wonder-filled, cool world that we live in, from a wildlife perspective.

            As your spirit arises to Heavin, Steve buddy, thank you for each of the entertaining learning experiences you presented to us with all of those "gorgeous" lethal critters. :bow:

                        My cousin was extra mad about Pluto getting taken off. Anyways, I feel really sorry his wife and daughter. They don't have him anymore...
