Steeve Known for his “bloke like you and I” and not affected by his celebrity status, is no more. In an accident if we can call it that way, he died on the Great Barrier Reef when a stingray barb pierced his chest. The Crocodile Hunter is believed to have died instantly when struck by the stingray while filming a sequence for a new TV series. Known for his wiered passion for getting in to risks as well as befriending the animals which he himself certifies as having a strange sense of understanding the animals, he built a huge base of fans as well as business both at home and around the world.
Prime Minister John Howard said Irwin was a typical Australian larrikin who brought joy to millions.
