Steve Irwin, the TV presenter known as the "Crocodile Hunter," has died after being stung by a stingray in a marine accident off Australia's north coast. Mr. Irwin was filming a documentary on "Things that Can Kill you in the Sea"
He had been lucky up until now.
Irwin held his son Bob, who was a month old at the time, in one arm while he dangled a piece of chicken over the snapping jaws of a four-metre crocodile.
He later acknowledged that he should have done things differently and officials in Australia's Queensland state decided not to file charges against him.
Aww crikey mate we' ll miss ya.
He was the best thing for nature TV shows since the Mutual of Omaha Wild Kingdom.
