CNN.com – ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin dead – Sep 4, 2006

Steve Irwin, the enthusiastic “Crocodile Hunter” who enthralled audiences around the world with his wildlife adventures, died Monday after being stung by a stingray while shooting a TV program off Australia’s north coast.

Media reports say Irwin was snorkeling at Batt Reef, a part of the Great Barrier Reef about 9 miles (about 15 kilometers) from the town of Port Douglas, when the incident happened on Monday morning.

Irwin, 44, was killed by a stingray barb that pierced his chest, according to Cairns police sources.

How sad.
