It is sad and was a shock alright. When I first heard I thought it was a joke too and like Sarah jumped on the news sites to confirm.

He was an ambassador for Australia. I go onto a few sites where there are plenty of people from other countries and they always know who the crocodile hunter is....actually they usually bring it up before I do.

It's awful isn't it :cry:
Of all the dangerous animals he's been with and then to be taken by a stingray

Not sure what size tail barb got him.

Some reports say the stinger went straight through his heart some say next to, he didn't die straight away, they tried to resus him but of course he had no chance.
This is not the ray.

his manager (who was with urwin at the time of the accident) was on ten's 5 oclock news tonight and he said they tried to resus him but when they finally got to paramedics they pronounced he was dead and that death wouldve been instantanous and that he wasnt in any pain.

i also saw the plane with terri bob and bindi-sue getting on it in tassie. that must be so hard for them. i wonder if they will go to the U.S to live? they should have a state funeral for him, he has done a lot for australia and the wildlife. ive been to his zoo and it is awesome.

youre right kim, most americans usually ask whether you know the guy personally lol.
