We Miss You Steve (A Heart-Pounding Moment)
Steve Irwin!!! For the Globe he was known as “Crocodile Hunter.”
Steve was beloved by millions of fans and animal lovers around the world and was one of Animal planet's most passionate conservationists.
I rarely missed his episodes on the Animal Planet’s channel…..
Today morning when I came to know about this TRAGIC LOSS…..the very first thing came into my mind was “Good people gets very short life” !!!! Really a heart-pounding moment for me………..
Steve was killed during a filming expedition on the Great Barrier Reef. While we are still collecting specific details, it was a rare accident in which Steve swam over a stingray and was stung by its barb in his chest. A doctor on board Croc One, Steve's research vessel, was unable to resuscitate Steve and by the time he was reached by the rescue helicopter he had passed away.
Steve was a larger than life force. He brought joy and learning about the natural world to millions and millions of people across the globe. He was a true friend to all of us at Discovery Communications. We extend our thoughts and prayers to Terri, Bindi and Bob Irwin as well as to the incredible staff and many friends Steve leaves behind."
He is no more………..
Steve, from all God's creatures, thank you. Rest in peace.
