    The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, has died after he was stung by a stingray off the far north Queensland coast.

    The ambulance service says he was diving near Low Isles off Port Douglas when the incident happened around 11am AEST.

    A helicopter carrying paramedics flew to the island, but he died from a stingray barb to the heart.

    His next off kin are being flown from Brisbane to Cairns this afternoon


    Sympathy to his family and the staff at Australia Zoo
     
  2. RIP mate.

    He will be sorely missed if only for personality, let alone the impact on peoples knowledge of the various beasties he would introduce to them.

  4. Jeez, that is too bad.

    I'm sure he'll be the subject of plenty of jokes in time. However, he was an interesting and entertaining personality. Crazy, sure, but everyone needs a healthy dose of insanity every now and then. He will be missed.

    RIP

    A big loss simply for the passion he had about his work. Even though he did manage to urine off a few to many snakes.
