I enjoyed Irwin until he did that stunt with his kid. I boycotted him after that.

I read about that one in the paper. Head trauma was the ultimate cause of death. That had to be a hard hit.

I heard about that yesterday as well, talk about freak accident, what are the chances.

[edit] Turns out to be about 17-30 deaths by sting rays a year, in the world.
so like chances are between 17 and 30 in 6,658,347,535-ish

An 80 lb mass running head long at 20 mph into a person in a boat doing 20 mph.......ya that would do it.
