Washington: The wife of Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark, the US Army nurse who died in Afghanistan during a Skype video chat, said that she saw a bullet hole in the closet behind as he collapsed, ABC News reported.
In a statement released today by the deceased family, Clark’s wife, Susan Orellana-Clark, described what she saw from the Skype video.
“During the Skype conversation on April 30th 2012, there was no sign that CPT Clark was in any discomfort, nor did he indicate any alarm. Then CPT Clark was suddenly knocked forward. The closet behind him had a bullet hole in it.”
The Skype video link continued for about two hours as Clark’s family tried to get help, according to the statement.
“After two hours and many frantic phone calls by Mrs. Clark, two military personnel arrived in the room and appeared to check his pulse, but provided no details about his condition to his wife,” read the statement.
The Pentagon says Clark’s cause of death remains under investigation, according to The Associated Press.
He is survived by his wife and two daughters, ages 3 and 9.
