Sad, but expected. I'm surprised he lasted this long.

It's odd, as sting rays do not attack, more defend.

Maybe Steve got a little to close? I always thought a croc would do him in.

Sting Rays only do that sort of thing if you agitate them, which he was probably trying to do just for the sake of getting "good" footage. Something you would think a guy with a wife and two kids would know better than to do.

From what I've heard, the stingray accidentally got cornered between Steve and his cameraman, and lashed out at the closest person.

Poor Steve. My brother was a big fan of him, and I never thought he'd go like this.

It was also caught on film apparently. I hope it doesn't get out.
The purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure poor reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog!

I always pictured him dying by gracefully crawling down the gullet of a tearful crocodile.

Anyway, quite sad, yes.
