Loss of a Legend,.

An ordinary bloke died on Monday in an extraordinary event.

DRAMATIC footage of his last moments alive shows Steve Irwin ripping a stingray's barb out of his chest just before he lost consciousness and died.
The freakish death of the Crocodile Hunter was captured on camera as he snorkelled above a large bull stingray in shallow water on the Great Barrier Reef yesterday.

THE body of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin has arrived home on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, as police who have viewed the footage of his death said he was not provoking the stingray that killed him. A hearse greeted the twin-engined plane on the tarmac at Maroochydore airport at 7.20pm AEST. It is believed his widow Terri remained at the family's home, where she is with her daughter Bindi, 8, and Bob, 2.
Grieving fans of the conservationist and entertainer have been flooding the airwaves, the internet and his zoo to express their sadness over his death.
