I mean, sure it sucks when anyone dies. But frankly, I'm more surprised he lived this long than anything else.
And really, wouldn't he have rather been killed by some vicious animal than like, plaque in his arteries? It's how he would have wanted to go!
The man stuck his head in crocodile mouths people! The fact that he survived his first time is astonishing, not alone that he got rich off a career of doing "don't do this at home" type stunts which most people would die from.
I hope the Darwin awards give this guy some kind of special honor for staving off death so long. And plus, in the pantheon of ways to die like a man, I think this guy just skyrocketted to first place by "getting stabbed in the chest by a stingray."
I feel for his wife and kid, but as for him -- I'm neither surprised nor sympathetic. You do stuff like that (particularly on a routine basis), you get dead.
I just wish it had been a crocodile which did him in. I would have loved that extra helping of irony.
So am I being insensitive?
