just found out from an aussie friend that steve irwin was killed by a stingray
WhiteKiboko;78731 said:according to CNN, it was in the chest...
while it wouldn't be immediate, infection is also a risk with stingray wounds.... ask a coworker of mine....
Mr Irwin had a puncture wound to the left side of his chest and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
