Dude! Find out more about the facts.... he was swimming 1 m above the stingray. The camera man filming it was blocking the stingray's escape path. Basically, the creature was boxed in and had to use its only defensive mechanism. The "accident" was that it struck the heart rather then the foot. Which is what you would get if you step accidently on a stingray.Originally Posted by afbug
And if you see any of his TV exploits you would see that he literally taunts the snakes to strike him. Yes, its great for "Wow" factor but I would think the approach is controversial.
Yes, its a sad lost of human life. Yes, the programs do bring more awareness. Yup, I was shocked for a while. But I also maintain that his approach was controversial.
Gimme David Attenborough or David Bellamy any day.
