I think a little reverential music would be appropriate

A friend of mine is in the Queensland police force and saw the footage. The video of the incident shows Irwin swimming over the top of a large ray in shallow water with his cameraman in front of it. The ray probably got a fright, felt trapped and lashed out with Irwin in a stupid position.

This time his luck with wild animals ran out.

20yrs ago I used to catch rays spearfishing as a kid. In a flight or fight reaction rays are definately in the flight category. Unless they have no choice.

I feel sorry for his wife and young family. In one sense at least they are well cared for financially. Personally his standing in my eyes dropped when he took his kid into the croc pen while feeding. Crocs, as emotionless dinosaurs, are not as predictable as dogs, and how many people and kids get dog bites every year.
