Say it isn't so

Conservationist, animal welfare activist, beloved entertainer Steve Irwin has been lost. Via Blah3, the story at
Irwin, 44, was killed almost instantly when the stingray stabbed him in the heart with its poisonous 20cm barb as he snorkelled off Port Douglas, in north Queensland, yesterday morning.

His American-born wife, Terri, was trekking in Tasmania's Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park when the news broke of her husband's death and was last night being raced back to Queensland with her two children Bindi, 8, and Bob, 2.

We send our best to the Erwin family, especially Bindi and Bob, who we have watched as they grow up, especially amazed at Bindi's fearlessness. And to the extended family at Australia zoo.
