Steve’s widow gets death tape

Terri Irwin has been given the last surviving copy of the video of her husband’s death.

Crocodile Hunter Steve was killed when a stingray pierced his heart with its barb last September and the moment was captured by a cameraman capturing Steve’s adventures for a documentary.

A Queensland state coroner says, “The footage has been the subject of widespread media interest and it was wholly appropriate that we took all possible steps to ensure something of such a personal and tragic nature did not fall into the wrong hands. This is in line with the wishes of Irwin’s family.”

Terri has said she will not be airing the tape on TV.
