The cameraman present at Steve Irwin's death has revealed that the wild life expert's final words were "I'm dying".

Underwater cameraman Justin Lyons spoke publicly for the first time about Irwin's last moments as he was the sole witness to his death when both of them were filming wildlife on the Great Barrier Reef in 2006, reported.

Lyons has revealed that the 'The Crocodile Hunter' suffered a fatal stingray attack during the shoot for a documentary called 'Ocean's Deadliest.'

The cameraman further added that all of a sudden stingray propped on his front and started stabbing him wildly with its tail and it went through Irwin's chest like a hot knife through butter.

Lyons asserted that the Australian wildlife expert just sort of calmly looked up at him and said that he was dying. (ANI)
