His death is still felt today. Despite it happening almost 8 years ago.
The late and great Steve Irwin's longtime partner and cameraman Justin Lyons has talked about the day of his close friend's death for the very first time, and the details are hard to listen to.
Lyons went on Australia's Studio 10 show to talk about that fateful day when Steve Irwin was stung by a stingray. For some reason we thought that maybe Mr. Irwin had been stung, and almost didn't realize the severity of the injury.
But that is NOT how Justin Lyons describes it. In fact -- the details are SO horrific that we wouldn't recommend venturing ahead if you're the squeamish type.
