Irwin's Freak Accident Caught On Film
Videotape of the moment Steve Irwin was hit by a stingray's tail shows Irwin pulling the barb from his chest. He was following the stingray in shallow water when it must've felt threatened... it's tail came up and spiked him in the chest... he pulled it out and the next minute, he was gone. Apparently, his heart was pierced, and he died almost immediately. The footage of the tragedy will most likely never be shown to the public. R.I.P. Steve.
