article imageAustralian fisherman survives stingray attack

By Bob Norman     Nov 29, 2006 in Environment
When Steve Irwin was killed we were told how rare attacks by stingrays were. This is the third one I've posted since his death.
An Australian fisherman has survived being stabbed in the chest by a stingray, the marine creature that killed Aussie crocodile hunter Steve Irwin two months ago, police said.
The fisherman was on board a prawn trawler off the coast of South Australia when the usually-placid creature on Wednesday plunged one of its razor-sharp tail barbs into the man's chest.
I'm starting to think that there have been a lot more of these attacks than we knew about. Is it just in the wake of the Crocodile Hunter's death that they're getting reported?
