Oh man, more sad news coming out about Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. It appears that his death was captured on video by the cameraman filming the documentary. John Stainton, Irwin's manager who was witness to everything said, "It shows that Steve came over the top of the ray and the tail came up, and spiked him here (in the chest), and he pulled it out and the next minute he's gone." Ugh, I feel so ill just thinking about the whole thing. I also heard Dorothy Lucy say this morning on Good Day L.A. that Steve's family reportedly wants the video to be made public because this was his life and who he was. Contact Music also reported, "The tapes are currently being held by Queensland police - but Irwin's family are determined to respect his last wishes and allow the harrowing footage to be broadcast. Irwin once insisted, "My number one rule is to keep that camera rolling. Even if it's shaky or slightly out of focus, I don't give a rip. "Even if a big old alligator is chewing me up I want to go down and go, 'Crikey!' just before I die. That would be the ultimate for me." One thing is for sure, when it does get out there, I don't think I will have the heart to watch it. Will you?
