Sad day.

You've gotta admit, this guy had charisma. I feel so sad for his wife and children.

I don't know what to say about this, only that I am sorry that this happened. I am glad at least he died doing what he loved.

Goodbye, Mr. Crocodile Hunter.

GEEZ! What an insane way to go. He was swimming OVER the stingray in the Great Barrier Reef. Evidently, the barb of the stingray's tail lifted straight up and pierced him through the heart? How crazy is that? I mean, he wrestled crocks and venomous snakes to the ground, and in the end, he dies by swimming over a ray? You've GOT to be KIDDING me! It sounds like a hoax, but I know that it is not one. It is just too insane to be true! And to have two small children left behind is so sad. I am sure that he was WELL insured - but STILL - that is not the point. And, what do you think will happen to all of those "friendly little stingray petting pools" that they have all across the country in every acquarium possible? Do you think that parents are going to allow their kids to "pet" a stingray now? Really?
