Croc Hunter's Death To Be Broadcast On TV

Footage of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin being killed by a stingray will be shown on TV to honour his wishes.

The daredevil’s cameramen captured the moment yesterday when the Aussie legend was stabbed through the heart by the fish’s deadly barbed tail.

Steve had always ordered his crew to carry on filming even if he was mauled to death.

So the graphic footage showing Steve, 44, being speared to death off Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is set for a sensational broadcast.
Queensland Police seized the tapes as the death sent shockwaves around the world.

But it is understood Steve’s family have vowed to grant the real-life Crocodile Dundee his "dying wish".

Steve famously said: "My number one rule is to keep that camera rolling. Even if it’s shaky or slightly out of focus, I don’t give a rip!

"Even if a big big old alligator is chewing me up I want to go down and go, ‘Crikey!’ just before I die. That would be the ultimate for me."

An insider said: "This is exactly what Steve would have wanted. He knew the dangers and was totally up for the cameras to get everything."
