Aw Crikey! RIP Crocodile Hunter

I'm stunned.

Breaking News from CNN:

September 4, 2006

Steve Irwin, the Australian TV presenter known as the "Crocodile Hunter," has died after being stung in a marine accident off Australia's north coast.

Australian media reports say Irwin was diving in waters off Port Douglas, north of Cairns, when the incident happened on Monday morning.

Irwin was killed by a stingray barb that went through his chest, according to Cairns police sources. Irwin was filming an underwater documentary at the time.

Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality Monday morning off Port Douglas, according to Australian media.

Queensland Police Services also confirmed Irwin's death and said his family had been notified. Irwin, 44, was director of the Australian Zoo in Queensland.


This news sucks. He could really make me laugh. I will help his memory live on with my nearly spot on impersonation that I've been practicing for years.

At least he died doing what he loved most.
