    We all heard the news about Steve Irwin's death. But what I wanna know is, how did it happen? I mean, if you think about where the barb on a stingray's tail is, then how did it get right in front of his chest swo that when it popped out, it stabbed him in the heart? Was he holding it up? Did he fall on top of the stingray? Did NE1 hear NEthing as to how that happened?

    He was swimming with them, swam over the top of one, and it flicked it's tail up and the barb went through his heart. It's really unusual and a freak accident. Totally sad as well, because when you think of all the crazy dangerous animals he's worked with, to be killed by something that unlikely seems totally unfair.

    *sniff* *sniff* poor guy.

    It shouldn't have happened!
    I was very sad for a few days after that. This is the second case of this happening since there has been another one before.
