Steve Irwin, the Australian naturalist, was killed today by a stingray on Australia's famous barrier reef.
The 44 year old father of two was known as the Crocodile Hunter for his interaction with crocodiles . He even had an unfortunate Micheal Jackson type lapse in judgment putting his baby son within metres of a large Australian crocodile, for the benefit of a live audience and TV viewers.
When babies were not involved, adults and children loved his "will he be eaten today" interaction with dangerous animals. Infotainment at its best, no doubt.
A real life Crocodile Dundee; killed by a fish at age 44.
