Crocodile Hunter Irwin's death caught on tape

BEERWAH, Australia — Steve Irwin pulled a poisonous stingray barb from his chest in his dying moments, his longtime manager said today, after watching videotape of the attack that killed the popular Crocodile Hunter.

Irwin's body was returned home to Beerwah, a hamlet in southeastern Queensland on the fringe of the Outback where he lived with his wife and two young children. Irwin turned a modest reptile park opened by his parents into Australia Zoo, a wildlife reserve that has become an international tourist attraction.

Hundreds placed bouquets and handwritten notes at an ad hoc shrine to the popular 44-year-old naturalist outside the park, and other tributes flowed in from Canberra to Hollywood.
