Australian 'crocodile hunter' Steve Irwin killed by stingray
SYDNEY (AFP) - World-renowned "crocodile hunter" and television environmentalist Steve Irwin has been killed after being stung in the chest by a stingray off northeastern Australia, police said.
A sad one. I can't say I'm totally surprised. He made a living out of working with deadly animals.
No, let me correct that. He made a life out of working with deadly animals. He did it with commitment and passion - a passion he shared with the world.
And in the end, he died doing what he loves. Outside of a few more decades, you can't ask for more than that.
