    Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin Dies

    04 September 2006
    TV star Steve Irwin killed while filming

    Television star Steve Irwin has been killed while filming an underwater documentary in Queensland.

    The 44-year-old, who was dubbed 'The Crocodile Hunter', was killed by a stingray barb through the chest while diving off Port Douglas.

    Local diving operator Steve Edmundson said: "Steve was hit by a stingray in the chest. He probably died from a cardiac arrest from the injury."

    Police confirmed that paramedics were flown to nearby Low Isles, where Irwin was taken to be treated, but he died before they arrived.

    Irwin, who runs the world famous Australia Zoo, is survived by his wife Terri and their two young children, Bindi Sue and Bob Clarence.

    Speaking to Sky Television, Queensland Tourism Minister Margaret Keech said: "It's a dreadful loss for the tourism industry and for nature conservation."

    "Everybody who met Steve was impressed with his energy and his enthusiasm," she said.

    Irwin made almost 50 'Crocodile Hunter' documentaries, which earned him worldwide acclaim for his dare-devil stunts with animals.











    I was just watching his show last week, and laughing my ass off as usual, he was getting his nose bitten by a snake, a moment later he's standing just outside the water, with a phuckin giant crocodile jumping out at him, he jumps back out of the way and he says with his legendary Aussie accent, "You're a bad boy you are".

    One of the funniest men I've ever watched in action, he's been praised for helping and encouraging researches to get closer to animals and study them, even the ones with a very aggressive nature.

    RIP Crocodile Hunter.

    It is very sad. He had a great way of intereacting with animals (although most of the time they were dangerous).

    Damn, I really liked this guy. He is crazy... Every day i watched him on "Animal Planet". Once he was fighting in his zoo with a crocodile, holding his 7 years old dauther...

    What an absolutely shitful day. First day of school, Giacinto dies, Steve dies.

    R.I.P.-a truly great man. You gotta love his documentaries, his passion for animals, his enthusiasm, his Aussie accent...

    Man I'm so depressed...

    RIP Steve Irwin.

    You made the discovery of wild animals a joy to watch. I'll forever miss your diffusive enthusiasm.

    If anything, I'm pretty sure Steve wouldn't have had it any other way. He died in the pursuance of his life's dream.

    Ciao,

    RIP.

    What a horrible way to go, but as cliche as it sounds, I'm sure he wouldn't want it to be any other way. His exit from the world was from doing what he loved to do, let it be.

    Guys, its a big shock here! I just can't believe it has happened, apparently its a freak reaction from a stingray. I feel for the camera men who filmed his death and were helpless to save him. RIP Steve Irwin

    THANKS FRISKO ,for this humble thread

    i was sort of embaressed to open up a thread for Steve as i thought not many people would have heard of him outside of the english speaking countries.

    in my mind a person who considered himself as an average aussie shmuck,

    who had and made millions,yet stayed true to him self,his family and country.

    i will be so proud to tell my aussie friends of this thread dedicated to the great man,

    RIP MATE

    I used to enjoy his shows quite a bit. I haven't watched a lot, but those I did were hilarious. A really sad day.

    Rest In Peace, Steve Irwin.

    Im still secretly expecting him to jump up and say in his expressive Australian accent and gestures "Fooled ya!".

    Death shouldnt have to apply to Steve Irwin.

    Another very sad death.

    I loved his shows and cant believe he has gone. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and his two kids that will have to grow up without a dad.

    RIP Mr Irwin
