A wife witnessed her husband’s death who was an Army officer assigned in Afghanistan while they were video chatting via Skype. However, the cause of Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark’s death was not immediately determined. According to the Pentagon it was under investigation, and his brother-in-law didn’t have the details.

"We are entrusting the military with investigating and with finding out what happened to Capt. Clark," Bradley Taber-Thomas told The Associated Press.

The 43-year-old Army chief nurse, was raised in Michigan and lived previously in Spencerport, N.Y., a suburb of Rochester and his wife's hometown. In 2006 Clark joined the Army and was stationed in Hawaii before he was assigned to the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso. In March he then served in Afghanistan. He received several awards and decorations for his service.

In a statement Taber-Thomas said that Clark died Monday while chatting to his wife during one of their regular Skype sessions.

Clark's body was returned Thursday to Dover Air Force Base. The Army chief nurse is survived by his wife and two daughters, age 3 and 9.
