This is sad news. The man famously known as "The Crocodile Hunter" has died in a freak accident with an animal NOT usually deadly. Steve Irwin was doing an underwater shoot off the Great Barrier Reef when he swam to close to a sting ray, and it stuck him with a barb in the heart. He was 44 years old.
His wife is now left with an 8-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son. She must have been quite a woman to stand by her husband with type of career he had. I can't imagine kissing my husband goodbye every morning, wondering if he'd survive his latest bout with some deadly creature.
