Description

THE cameraman present at Steve Irwin's death has today opened up about the beloved conservationist's final moments, revealing his final chilling words: "I'm dying." Underwater cameraman Justin Lyons was the sole witness to Irwin's death — the only person underwater with him as they filmed wildlife on the Great Barrier Reef in 2006. On this morning's episode of Network Ten's Studio 10 program, he spoke publicly for the first time about Irwin's last moments. Irwin and crew were eight days into a shoot for a new nature documentary called Ocean's Deadliest. Chartering a small inflatable boat through chest-deep water, they came across a "massive, eight-foot-wide stingray".
