Steve Irwin – Video Footage?

September 05, 06 by Bharani

Ever since I heard the news, it disturbed me a lot. Steve Irwin is a kind of character who will be missed immensly. His passion for animals and solid courage to get up-close with lethal beasts stands out…It is a shocking coincidence that he was killed while he was filming for a documentary called “Ocean’s deadliest” (A project with his daughter Bindi).

A death completely undeserved. A person who cherishes facing dangerous animals face-to-face to be killed by an unexpected creature in an unexpected way is totally undeserving…The death of this mortal has immortalized the same mortal in the books of history, the channels of geography and hearts of his admirers…

I feel bad to write this…but I actually searched for the video footage of the accident in the internet…found the following quotes…and am struck in awe for him…

“…The first e-mail question The National Ledger received after we published the fact that there was a video of the actual sting to the heart was “How long until this is plastered all over the web?”

I hope never – but the answer may not be what you think.

A report from Contact Music UK claims Irwin’s family are determined to respect his last wishes and allow the harrowing footage to be broadcast…”

…CMUK reports that Irwin once insisted, “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 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 tells British newspaper the Daily Star, “This is exactly what Steve would have wanted. He knew the dangers and was totally up for the cameras to get everything.”

If that was indeed his wish and if it is broadcast, I hope it is with the family’s blessing on a TV show. I certainly hope it does not leak to the web first.
