Why surprised? He's been tormenting dangerous animals for years; the only surprise is this didn't happen sooner.

I didn't know he was a diver.

Perhaps because of all the animals he's tormented this is really the one least likely to kill him?

People rarely get stung but them, and they are even more rarely fatal. It was just that it happened to get him in the heart.

I think it's sad. Except for the baby thing, he seems to responsibly torment animals and really has taught a lot of people a lot. I feel very badly for his family, he was in a dangerous career, but no one expects this sort of thing to happen.

responsibly torment? Is this even possible?

Gah. I don't wish him dead, but I do wish he'd never gotten on the air. His antagonistic treatment of animals has always pissed me off.

Welll I said resonibly torment because, really I don't think he tormented animals.

The guy was a great zoologist. His zoo has done a lot. His shows were a bit out there, but his non-crocodile shows were fantastic. I am sad he is no longer out there to continue to educate people about animals.
