I was looking at the stingray page on wikipedia and its been updated already!

Fatal ray stings, such as that which killed Australian environmentalist Steve Irwin (although he was not killed by the sting itself but from a puncture to the heart in turn causing cardiac arrest), are rare but can occur if stings are improperly treated, sever major arteries, or are in the pelvic region or chest.

Dasyatids are not normally visible to swimmers, but divers and snorkelers may find them in shallow sandy waters, more so when the water is unseasonably warm. THEY ****ING KILLED STEVE!!!! ZFUCCK

I can't understand how a sting ray barb could pierce through the chest cavity and cause a laceration on the heart? I mean, the barb must have been really long, really sharp, and moving with incredible force. What a freak accident.

RIP...

"Irwin was at Batt Reef, off the remote coast of northeastern Queensland state, shooting a segment for a series called "Ocean's Deadliest" when he swam too close to one of the animals, which have a poisonous bard on their tails, his friend and colleague John Stainton said."

That'll be Shakespeare then? ... OR cries of "Oooh that Burns" may be misleading..

I accept he did a lot of good work for animal conservation, but somehow I always found him to be just plain irritating. ;)

R.I.P Steve.

Damnit, i'm also speechless like the rest of you guys. He was such a brave guy doing shows with such dangerous animals. I respected him greatly for his courage. People like him don't appear often. Even if i never knew him, i knew he was a nice person judging by his love and care for animals. once again...R.I.P.
