Croc hunter Irwin dead at 44   Leave a comment

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.
