Awww, Crikey!

Steve Irwin is dead. Only 44, that sucks. He was filming another documentary and got a stingray barb to the chest. Having seen a bunch of his work, I won't be surprised if he was 'playing' with the stingray and it expressed its displeasure. But he was always entertaining, and seemed to be just a bit crazy, which is a plus.

Edit: Apparently it he was swimming directly over a large stingray with a camera man out in front filming both Irwin and the stingray. The ray got spooked and went into defensive mode and lashed out with its tail. The barb entered Irwin's chest, piercing his heart.

Stabbed in the heart by a stingray. There's one for the freak accident file.
