Nick named “The crocodile hunter”, famous zoo keeper and conservationist Steve Irwin died at the age of 44 after being stabbed in the heart, multiple times, by a stingray barb. He was in the middle of filming an underwater documentary titled “Ocean’s Deadliest” on the Great Barrier Reef in far north Queensland.

According to the cameraman, Justin Lyons, Irwin was stabbed “hundreds of times” and his last words were, “I’m dying”. The jagged barb of the stingray went straight through his chest leaving him with a 2-inch-wide wound just above his heart. “I saw Steve standing in a huge pool of blood that I realised something had gone wrong” Lyons reminisced.

Bindi was 8 and Robert was 2 at that time.

Bindi recently turned 21 and on her special day, she also got engaged to her boyfriend of 6 years, Chandler Powell – a 22 year old wakeboarder from Florida. The surprise proposal took place in the gardens of their family’s Australia Zoo and Robert photographed the occasion.

The newly engaged announced the news to the world by posting a group picture with her fiancé, mother and brother. She captioned it, “Thankful to have such a beautiful family to hold my hand and share life’s most magical moments ❤️💍”.

 

She later posted an old family photograph paying tribute to her father. Bindi wrote, “Dad, You would be so incredibly proud of Robert. He has been such an amazing support during this beautiful new life chapter. I know you’d be beaming with pride when the time comes that he walks me down the aisle. I wish you could be here for these moments, but I know that your spirit lives on in us ❤️”

 

Robert also posted pictures of the proposal on his Instagram page. He wrote, “Verified. I’ve photographed some pretty cool stuff in my time… nothing comes close to this. I was so happy and thankful that @chandlerpowell asked me to secretively document the moment that @bindisueirwin said yes! One of the most special times ever 😊”

 

He posted another photograph with the newly engaged couple, captioning it, “I am beyond happy for you two. You are true soulmates and have always been so completely perfect for each other. Love you both and congratulations 💍”
