Video Of Steve Irwin’s Attack Given To His Wife

The fatal attack on the “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin by a venemous stingray barb to the chest was caught on video, but will not be shown to the public any time soon. CNN reports:

Australian officials have handed the video of “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin’s fatal encounter with a stingray to his family and destroyed any remaining copies to prevent the grisly footage from being made public, a state coroner said Thursday.

Queensland State Coroner Michael Barnes said police gave the original film of Irwin’s death to his wife, Terri, in late December and that all copies of the tape, which was shot during the filming of a documentary on the Great Barrier Reef, had been destroyed.

Meanwhile, the damn Screech sex-tape–which we all had to endure–was brought to the public so easily, without any sort of barrier. Life just isn’t fair. My eyeballs are still burning–I mean, I HAD to watch it.
