Sad news Steve Irwin the Crocodile man today was killed doing what he does best

THE Crocodile Man, Steve Irwin, is dead.

He was killed in a freak accident in Cairns, police sources said. It is understood he was killed by a sting-ray barb that went through his chest.

He was swimming off the Low Isles at Port Douglas filming an underwater documentary and that's when it occured.

Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality this morning at Batt Reef off Port Douglas

I hate to be blunt, but I knew it was only a matter of time (because of what he does).

I feel sorry for the guy and his family though...

geeze, you think it would be the crocs that get him but nope. Cant imagine how it would be to die like that. Harsh stuff, really harsh. He was a definate character, and sure maybe he over did it at times, but its sad to see an australian icon go like that. RIP.

It is real. Mum messaged me 2 or so hours ago when the SES (EMQ) chopper was on its way back to the hospital with his body.

Very Sad.

I'm speechless, he was such an amazing person. I loved watching his show, and how much he cared about all the animals he showed.

RIP

My thoughts go out to his family.
