Steve Irwin's Horrifying Final Moments Revealed By Diving Partner — Watch Terrifying Interview Here

steve irwins horrifying final moments revealed by diving partner watch interview here

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.

Lyons said that they were getting one final shot of the sting ray when suddenly it came back and "it propped on its front and started stabbing wildly, hundreds of strikes in a few seconds".

When the cameraman watched the stingray swim away, Steve Irwin had a policy of continuing to film no matter what, he turned back to his friend to see that Steve was "standing in a huge pool of blood”.

Steve seemed to know that he was in trouble although he didn't realize the extreme severity of the injury as Justin Lyons revealed:

"He obviously didn’t know it had punctured his heart … even if we had got him into an emergency ward at that moment we probably we wouldn’t have been able to save him."

Despite the fact that Justin Lyons recorded the entire incident, he (thankfully) revealed that it will never be made available to the public. In fact we wouldn't blame him if he destroyed the video.

Such a tragic end for such a beloved man. We're horrified to hear and read the details about his death, and it's absolutely not recommended for the faint of heart.

Check out the full interview… (below)!

    Well, I hope the little burst of attention you'll get for this is worth the pain you're causing his family.

    In what way will this cause pain for his family? If anything it is the opposite..

    When Steve Irwin died it was so sad, it felt like a member of my own family died. I've never been so heartbroken over a "celebrity" death before. I won't watch the video. I can't.

    I'm not special but I predicted his death in advanced. I remember distinctly telling my sister as we were watching his show "you know this guy is going to die someday dont you?" That wasnt 20/20 hindsight. That was the bad juju chilling my bones. She did didnt say anything when I said it. Just gave me that "you say something?" look. But who was the first person she called when he died? BRO. I knew she was going to call.

    Re: Juju Antennae. – I knew there was going to be a typo. I just checked back to see if that prediction came true.
