A stingray barb went through his chest? Yikes.

That's really sad.

I got a kick out of his style.

That's really sad, my daughter will be upset, she loves his show.

Wow. It's currently the lead story on MSNBC, by the way.

awww, man.

he was like a hero to little boys everywhere. (made the moms cringe, but the kids liked him).

that's so sad and an awful way to go!
09/04/2006 01:14:14 AM · #10
Sad - but he took risks knowing it was a real possibility. At least he died doing what he loved
09/04/2006 01:15:06 AM · #11
Made the Aussies cringe too, but yeah, my kids learned a lot from him.
As the daughter said, at least he went doing what he loved...

Man, I used to really love watching his show together with my kids. My daughter even bought me his movie for my last birthday. I'm really bummed. Very sad day--though, the way he lived his life, I'm not totally surprised he met an early end, and he died doing exactly what he loved.

Hate to hear that. I enjoyed watching him. We should all have that kind of passion for life.

I just heard the news on the radio with my daughter Sarah and we are very sad...he was a great Aussie guy who was so popular...I feel for his wife and kids, but especially for little Bindi who idolised him...

We'll miss you Steve

a big loss.

Gonna rain on this parade.
Sad that a man died, and a such a character as well.

BUT all through viewing his shows all these years, I've always asked why he doesn't just LEAVE the poor snakes, crocs, etc alone? Yes they're beautiful animals, but isn't it strange that he terrorizes them, grabs them by the tail, drags them out of the holes they're HIDING in, and forces his attention on them, against their will?

I prefer nature shows where they LEAVE the animals alone, instead of manhandling them and exposing them to incredible stress, all for the sake of a TV show.

What was he doing in such a proximity to a STINGray? These are NOT aggressive animals, and they only attack when they feel threatened. The only conceivable position for him to have been stung in the chest is if he was trying to ride one, and the animal reacted in the only way it knows how to defend itself, by bucking its stinger upward. I've heard of only one previous incident in which a man was unthinking enough to have tried to ride a stingray. And yes, he got a barb through the heart for it as well.

Flame away...

Its so sad to think of someone with such exuberance gone. He seemed to be full of life. What sad news.
