stay away from stingrays

What a way to wake up. The Zero Boss, Laid-Off Dad and Daddytypes all reported that Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin has died. He was snorkeling off the coast of Port Douglas when

“He came over the top of a stingray that was buried in the sand, and the barb came up and hit him in the chest.”

Perhaps the worst part of all of this is that the accident was caught on tape: it occurred while Irwin was filming spots for a children’s show he was doing with his daughter, Bindi.

I feel terribly for the Irwin family. Not So and I are at a loss for words.
