Aussie croc hunter Steve Irwin killed in 'freak' stingray attack
SYDNEY (AFP) - World-famous Australian "crocodile hunter" and television environmentalist Steve Irwin has been killed by a stingray blow to the chest while filming a documentary on the Great Barrier Reef.

The larger-than-life Irwin, 44, known for his fearlessly enthusiastic handling of even the deadliest of wildlife, was killed when a stingray barb punctured his heart during underwater filming off northeastern Australia.

"He came over the top of a stingray and the stingray's barb went up and went into his chest and put a hole into his heart," said the ebullient Irwin's longtime producer John Stainton, who was with him at the time on Monday. ...

Enjoyed every show I ever seen him in. They were exciting and educational. He will be missed. Godspeed to his family.

Chas from Phoenix: "appears to be so accidental"? Are you suggesting a conspiracy? Or are you suggesting that God struck him dead because he was an evolutionist? Would a rare death by sting-ray be any less "ironic" if Steve was a Christian (in the sense that he met the criteria for "Christian" as laid down by the SermonaaAudio Confession of Faith)?
Mike from NJ: Was Steve more "puffed up" than you, or I , or anyone else on SermonAudio? What actions of his cause him to be described as "puffed up". Will you too not be "brought down" in the sense of experiencing physical death?
Calvin1: You actually believe that God predestined Steve to "pride"? What "prideful" things did he do to give you that opinion? How do you know that God smote him and did not just allow the "smoting" to occur?
I have never been so happy with "separation of church and state" as I am since I discovered this forum. Some of you are very Christ-like in your comments, but some of you Elmer Gantrys give me cause for grave concern.

I don't necessarily mean that I'm surprised he wasn't stung by a stingray sooner.

I mean it's surpring that he wasn't eaten by something or killed by some wild animal before now.

I would find it hard to believe that most of the people who were familiar with him didn't see this coming.

Why do you say that? Death by stingray attack is extremely rare.

This is sad but it's surprising it didn't happen sooner.

Regardless, he will be missed

Calvin1, perhaps the pride (as in 'puffed up with') is yours -- not predestined, but yours alone.

I agree with everyone else. God predestined him to pride before the creation of the world and then smote him.

It's good to be part of the elect.

Fallen world. Two fallen creatures meet. One careless moment and bad things can happen.

Despite the precautions they took, they evidently had not enough humility. One cannot predict what domestic animals, let alone wild, will do (fallacy of induction), so a little fear in this business is healthy.

This is the same problem circus animal-handlers have.

All who get puffed up shall be brought down!

I'm not sure but I believe that Irwin was an evolutionist. It's kind of ironic that his life was ended by one of God's 'creatures' in a manner that appears to be so accidental.
