I just read this on a blog and thought it was a joke.
Steve "Crikey" Irwin has died after being stung by a stingray in Queensland.
I always found him an annoying pillock, but that is just awful. At least he died "doing his thing" rather than being hit by a bus or something equally pedestrian (excuse the pun).
If I had a filing system, I would file this under 'sad'.
