    Steve Irwin is dead?

    I read in this article that Steve Irwin died earlier today from a sting ray barb to the chest.

    I wasnt sure if it was true but its also listed on Wikipedia and some other news sources I found on google.

    I understand that its hard to verify. Rumors of his death comes out several times a year.

    But a sting ray of all animals. Boy alot of poeple must have lost bets there.

    I can't seem to pull up the official homepage, they must be getting hit pretty hard with people trying to confirm/deny.

    Man that just sounds fake. A stingray barb? To his chest?! What a way to go, though, if its true.

    3 sources so far.


    I dont think he was attacked but it could have been one in the sand or stuck against something

    A stingray barb is like a knife

    I reckon if he'd been hit anywhere else he might still be alive.
    He probably got too close and it just shot the tail out at him. I'm guessing it was one of those gigantic stingrays.

    Edit: Then again, I don't think he was near any hospitals so he'd have probably been screwed anyway.

    I feel really weird, everyone on the net is talking about this and his wife doesn't even know.

    Holy crap, that's freaky. I've never heard of anyone getting killed by a stingray before. Then again not many people go out of their way to piss stingrays off.

    Yeah, it's weird that his wife doesn't know but the Internets do.

    Yeah, I just heard it on the radio. He truly was a madman, what a loss.

    If it's true that is.

    He didn't get stunned, this one was set to kill.
