Any Army nurse stationed in Afghanistan died during a routine video chat with his wife, who was in Texas. Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark was on Skype when he died, and the details of his death are under investigation. What a horrible tragedy for her to witness.
The nurse's brother-in-law Bradley Taber-Thomas said, "Bruce's wife tragically witnessed her husband's death during one of their regular Skype video-chats on Monday. At the time of the incident, the family was hoping for a rescue and miracle, but later learned that it was not to be. Although the circumstances were unimaginable, Bruce's wife and extended family will be forever thankful that he and his wife were together in his last moments."
How incredibly sad for this family. The Army nurse Capt. Clark left behind his wife and two children ages three and nine. This situation has to be incredibly difficult for the entire family. Can you even imagine what the wife must have felt watching her husband's death while the two were chatting? How incredibly heart breaking.
Right now there is plenty of mystery surrounding this story. Was Capt. Clark attacked? Was there an accident? Exactly what caused his death? Obviously those questions have not been answered, and who knows if they will ever be answered. Hopefully his family knows what happened, and if they don't, then hopefully the investigation will provide answers.
