Steve Irwin, the “Crocodile Hunter,” died over the weekend.
The BBC has details:
Australian naturalist and television personality Steve Irwin has been killed by a stingray during a diving expedition off the Australian coast.
Mr Irwin, 44, died after being struck in the chest by the stingray’s barb while he was filming a documentary in Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.
Apparently, he died from the wound itself, which pierced his heart, rather than the venom from the stingray.
He is survived by a wife and two children. My thoughts are with his family.
