This man tangled with crocs on the regular, but was taken out by a stingrays. Growing up in South Florida and being an oceanography buff as a kid, I’ve always known how dangerous stingrays are, but still, the thought of this being the cause of his death just takes my breath away.
On the one hand, it really shouldn’t be shocking because he was always placing himself in harm’s way with dangerous animals, but that bold fearlessness was the very thing that made me begin to see him as impervious. I guess at the end of the day, we’re all just human, and no matter how much familiarity with have with animals, there’s always a wild card factor that can, at any moment, come into play.
God bless him and his family. See y’all tomorrow after the holiday’s over.
