Topic: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

Hi All,

I was utterly surprised to here that Steve Irwin has died. Apparently he was filming in Cairns (in Queensland, Australia) and was stung by a sting-ray and died. Here's a link to the story. I'm absolutely gob-smacked at this.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

I know it, I just logged on and there was the article.
I don't even know how old his kid/kids is/are. But I can't imagine that trauma if his daughter is at least 5.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

His daughter is 8 and his son is 3. Which is terrible, but I think it would always have been hardest on his wife... Always wondering if he would come back alive. So many close calls, this one finally got him.

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

I got up at 12:00 today and my dad was off work. He was cleaning his guitar and said "guess who died.." I looked at him startled. I said"who?" Dad looked over to the TV and they said "Steve Irwin killed today by a sting wray.." I was then calmed. I got some cereal and said to my dad, "welp.......doesnt surprise me......." My dad just shook his head at me. "What!?" I said. "He was gonna die sooner or later! He HUNTS CROCS FOR GODS SAKE!"

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

OH gosh!  That's... very shocking.  I grew up watching his show, he was my role model.  That's so sad... yet surprising that it was a stingray, which is usually a docile animal, and not a croc.  Wow, that he is actually dead is so hard to swallow...

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

Actually, I'm with TW on this 1. It's sad and all, and it's horrible for his family. But I mean, he has been stung and bitten and snapped at thousands of times, sooner or later he was bound to get caught. He knew it, his wife knew it, everyone knew it. But it was his life, and he died doing what he loved.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

I got up yesterday and heard that on the news. That is shocking. Animal Planet is having a tribute to him starting at 6:00 pm at local time. I certanly plan on watching it.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

I actually watched that.  It was very interesting.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

Shocked the heck out of me. Very sad.

The footage hasn't made it to the internet yet has it? Cuz I heard it exists and I hope it never gets out.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

There's a link to the video from my area's paper's site, but I'm not sure I want to give a link to the site or not since it's got my city name on it. But it is out there.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

For real? S.O.B!  http://graphics.gaiaonline.com/images/template/smiles/icon_stressed.gif That really sucks, cuz I just heard on the radio this morning how the people who had that rights to the video were genuinely trying to keep it from leaking. Oh well, I guess it was bound to happen eventually; it was only a matter of time. I'm just a little surprised it happened so fast.

Would it be possible to just give us a link to the video?

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

I just went to the site and it's not there anymore. I'm sorry. I didn't watch it though cause I was in a hurry at the time, so I can't say what was in it. Maybe try Yahoo or something? Google, maybe?

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

They've said they're not going to release the footage. Apparently it's pretty grusome. They said the sting ray put it's barb through his heart. Apparently he pulled it out, collasped and died.

But I guess he died doing what he loved. I feel so sorry for his family apparently Terri and the kids were trekking in Tasmania so they weren't even in the same state when he died. I think the hardest part for Terri would be debating whether or not you'd want to watch the footage of his death. How horrid sad

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

He was 44 when he died, so it would be 1962 that he was born.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

I was floored when I heard the news. I guess I'd always thought of Steve Irwin as invincible, him hunting crocs and all.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

I always thought he would be killed by something.when i first saw his show i said hed die some day in some strange accident with a normally harmless animal.i think he was in love with the idea.he always had an odd look in his eyes.

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

Its very very ironic once you think about it. Its kind of like when Cristopher Reeve dies. (RIP)

Re: The Croc Hunter (Steve Irwin) has Died

Yeah.  Both of them were great losses, and its especially shocking considering how tough they were before death.
