Years after “The Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin was tragically stung and killed by a stingray in 2006, the cameraman who was with him is revealing his final moments.

Justin Lyons, who worked with Irwin for 15 years, spoke out recently on an Australian talk show and revealed the final two words spoken by the popular wildlife expert and television star on Sept. 4, 2006.

Lyons said Irwin’s final words were, “I’m dying.”

You can view Lyons’ entire interview in the video above.

    Would it have been so horrible to just tell everyone that his last words were, “tell my family I love them” ? I think it was obvious to everyone what happened. This guy sounds like a real d-bag.


    I think that he would have talk to steve’s wife before doing this he would not have done it if he though it would hurt them im sure they would love for everyone to remember steve he is the reason i love croc’s now they are wounderful animals steve and his family will always be in my heart and prays we love you guys.

    This must’ve been horrible for him, I don’t think he’s trying to cash in, I’m sure the media has been after him for years! What a tragic event & it must’ve been very difficult to talk about!

      I like to think the best of people, but I think he has had plenty of time to grieve and find it doubtful reporters are just now seeking to ask him. Given Bindi has been in the news recently, I think he saw it as an opportunity.

      And FWIW, I think him choosing to offer end-of-life conversation information to anyone other than the family is just plain tacky and serves no purpose other than for ratings/publication sales. If I were him and was asked that, I would look at the person like they were the most repulsive person on earth and not respond. The only motivation for this has to be greed, whether its financial or just attention-seeking.
