wow you're right. crazy

Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, has died after being struck by a stingray barb in Queensland.
Mr Irwin, 44 died after receiving a sting ray barb to the chest, which possibly caused a heart attack.
He was shooting a documentary off Port Douglas when he was struck.
The Queensland Police Service has confirmed Mr Irwin's death. In a statement, it said Mr Irwin collapsed after being stung by a sting ray at Batt Reef, off Port Douglas, about 11am.
After being struck, Mr Irwin's crew called for medical treatment and
the Emergency Management Queensland Helicopter responded,
but he was dead before the treatment arrived.
The statement said Mr Irwin's family has been advised.
His American-born wife Terri is reported to be trekking on Cradle Mountain in Tasmania.
A spokesman for the Queensland Ambulance Service said officers attended the scene on Low Isles via helicopter at 12.04pm today and arrived back in Cairns at 12.53pm.
"The area it was delivered to was the problem. A sting ray hit to the chest is a big problem," he said.
Mr Irwin - known worldwide as the Crocodile Hunter - is famous for his enthusiasm for wildlife and his catchcry "Crikey!".

The father of two's Crocodile Hunter program was first broadcast in 1992 and has been shown around the world on cable network Discovery.

He also starred in movies and has developed the Australia Zoo wildlife park, north of Brisbane, which was started by his parents Bob and Lyn Irwin.
Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, who used a photograph of his family at Australia Zoo for his official Christmas card last year, hailed Mr Irwin for his work in promoting Australia.

Mr Irwin was heavily involved in last year's "G'Day LA" campaign.

"The minister knew him, was fond of him and was very, very appreciative of all the work he'd done to promote Australia overseas," a spokesman said.
A spokeswoman for Irwin's Australia Zoo said she was aware of reports of his death and the zoo would not be making any statements at this stage.
According to the zoo's website, Irwin was born in Victoria in 1962, but
moved with his family to Queensland in 1970 when his father, Bob, started a reptile park on the Sunshine Coast.
Irwin married American Terri Raines in 1992 after she visited the zoo
on holiday.

he was a character that educated those that watched his show. When his show first aired it was nice and genuine. After a few good seasons the producers or network managed to make the show formulaic. Then he seemed like he was grabbing aniimals man handeling them with his smile and accent. His biggest accomplishment is his creating a Loving family and having a daughter he also introduced the world to "Crikey" and "She's a Beaut". I believe These slang words will be added to the new websters dictionary...Yes call me Bestradamus...my condolences go out to his family and all the animals he's kidnapped as they were minding their own then released after he's flirted with them felt them up.

rip.

he was maligned not only internationally but in australia as a bit of a joke, and as just adding to stereotypes....and i thought this at points. even talking to my mates today, lots of people just view it as he deserved it. but, just watching an interview with him from a while back on aussie tv, and the guy had a real sense of environment, family and was a good bloke.

thing is, im pretty sure the incident was some kind of freak accident, like if it had got him anywhere but the heart he would have lived.

pretty sad for his family,

Sting Rays

Dasyatids (their genus) generally do not attack aggressively, or even actively defend themselves. When threatened, their primary reaction is to swim away. However, when they are attacked by predators or stepped on, the barbed stinger in their tail (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tail) is mechanically whipped up. This attack is normally ineffective against their main predator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Predator): sharks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray#_note-0) Humans are usually stung in the foot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot); it is also possible, although less likely, to be stung by brushing against the stinger. Contact with the stinger causes local trauma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_trauma) (from the cut itself), pain and swelling from the venom, and possible infection from parts of the stinger left in the wound. Injuries to humans include, but are not limited to: poisoning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venom), punctures, severed arteries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artery) and possible death. Fatal stings, such as that which killed Australian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian) naturalist and television personality (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television_personality) Steve Irwin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Irwin) in 2006,[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray#_note-1) are extremely rare. As of 1996, worldwide known deaths from stingray barb injuries numbered 17.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray#_note-2) As of 2001 there has been only one person documented to have survived a stingray injury to the heart.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray#_note-3)
Treatment for stings includes hot water (as hot as the victim can stand), which helps ease pain and break down the venom, and antibiotics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibiotic). Other possible pain remedies include papain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papain) (papaya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papaya) extract, contained in unseasoned powdered meat tenderizer), which may break down the protein of the toxins, though this may be more appropriate for jellyfish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jellyfish) and similar stings. Folklore incorrectly holds that one should urinate on the stung area; in actuality, urine and vinegar are not effective treatments.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray#_note-4) Pain normally lasts up to 48 hours but is most severe in the first 30 60 minutes and may be accompanied by nausea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nausea), fatigue (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatigue_%28physical%29), headaches (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headache), fever (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fever) and chills

big hero of mine no shit. i loved this guy. he was making a scene for his daughters new show but discovery have said they havent decided if they are going to show the footage of the attack or not. The Aussie police who were give the tape say that Steve does not intimidate the ray at all, and that although the ray's barb is posinous, it was probably the 20cm serrated barb going into his Aorta that killed him.

And yes, the footage does show Steve pulling the Barb out form his heart, dude was a legend.
