    Now it says that his wife doesn't know yet. It's all over the internet, and probably the news in Australia. It's going to be a tough way to find out. :s

    I thought I'd heard it wrong when it first came on the radio this morning.

    Definitely not a nice way to go either, great shame, the man was a legend. :)

    Real shame. :(

    Crazy part is that he took the barb to the chest/heart. I guess normally attacks by stingrays aren't fatal, was just a really bad thing of luck he got hit where he did.

    Sad day. :cry:

    Yeah, most of the time thier attacks are to arms or legs. Mostly due to a person stepping on them since they tend to burry themselves a bit in the sand. Thing is that the barb on their tail has edges that create a nasty gash type wound when the StingRay pulls out. So when he got hit in the chest it musta did some ugly damage. I guess when he swam over the StingRay it freaked and stung him. They were saying in one of the stories that he felt no pain. But I think he felt it, badly. Then it ended, quickly. Was a fun guy to watch. His shows were always interesting and entertaining. :(

    They say it poked his heart, I don't think thats instant, but pretty close.
