Once we were, with my wife and son, watching as there were trees chopped down. After first tree fell my son bursted into tears. I tried to comfort him and tell him why that tree had to fall. Still, he was so young that he could not understand why. All that he understood was that tree he liked so much run around of fell down. Died. So when they did chop second tree down he cried again. Why that tree had to die? I did know but my son did not. So I walk away and we watched those trees that still standed tall. They probably stand even after I, even my son, has died. We weep for trees but do the trees weep for us?

When people are dying we keep asking this question of why very often? There are some reasons or explanations how some people died and what killed them. There are reasons, like in war, that can be pointed out. But still all this is only superficial. Heartstroke, accident, bullet, axe, ageing, stingray. Whatever kills us it does not have meaning. Death is part of life. Without death there were no life. Every living thing is going to die at some point. Death has no meaning to one that have died. Only life that we lived is meaningful. Every life we touched, every joy we enjoyed, every sorrow we shared. Our legacy keeps on living in those people we have touched. If one does live like there were no tomorrow, living the life one loves and shining one's enthusiasm and love everywhere one goes that's good life, happy life. Happy life is best we can hope for. And relatively (fast and) painless death. And that our legacy will live on, either on our children or in people we have touched of. I think this man had all this : he was doing what he loved to the end and surely he left legacy. He did not have to wither away in pains which is very mercifull. I feel sorry for his family thou and I respect their sorrow. It really hurts to lost someone you love (I know it by experience).

With respect, may he rest in peace.

Just for your information, he's the 17th recorded death by a sting ray. The only one that was caught on tape.

He was filming his documentary. In fact, the camera man actually swam in front of the sting ray and steve went above it. This is what caused it to attack, they panic when they're boxed in apparently.

I'm curious what they intend to do with the footage. It actually shows the attack in full. Steve didn't exactly die in the water though, but it would show the fatal blow.

I don't particularly want to see it, but I hope it's not just shoved into his documentary he was making at the time to increase sales.

I doubt it'll even be aired.

That's just a little too disrepsectful if you ask me.

You tell that to the media who are constantly bothering his family and trying to get interviews with the kids.

There's links online to it, but I think really, showing his death footage is a bit too much on TV. I wouldn't won't it, and I doubt his family do either. (to see it on TV)
