    Hit the Australian News Sites Half an Hour Ago, and the Big 3 US sites (CNN, MSNBC, Fox) about 15 minutes ago. Steve Irwin, the "Crocodile Hunter", was killed by a stingray barb to the chest off the coast of Australia.

    I just got done reading this earlier on my main page..it is so sad, it made me cry! Amazingly, it surprised me, although I told my husband not too long ago "That man is going to get himself killed one of these days".

    wow..... he was one of those guys you always say "he's crazy for doing that, he's gonna get himself killed one day'..... and now he has.

    Still he chose a dangerous job and repeatedly put himself in life threatening situations, so i cant say im supprised.

    Wow. Talk about a freak accident. I have dove with rather large sting rays and never heard of anybody actually getting stung by one, let alone having the stinger go through their chest.

    Can't say i'm suprised he died in his line of work though.

    We had a long talk about this at work today, being in the same business of educating people about wildlife and such. :( Very sad. My thoughts are with his wife Terri and his daughter.:(
