Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark died April 30 while talking to his wife, Susan Orellana-Clark, during one of the couple's regular online video chats.

The family of Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark, 43, released a 2nd statement describing what his wife saw in the April 30 video from Tarin Kowt.

Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark’s wife, Susan Orellana-Clark, and his family released two statements on his death.

“Bruce’s wife tragically witnessed her husband’s death during one of their regular Skype video-chats” April 30, the family said.

On Sunday ,May 6,in second statement said"Clark was suddenly knocked forward.The closet behind him had a bullet hole in it. Other individuals, including a member of the military, who rushed to the home of CPT Clark's wife also saw the hole and agreed it was a bullet hole."

The Skype link remained open for two hours Monday as family and friends in the U.S. and Afghanistan tried to get Clark help. Then two military personnel arrived and appeared to check his pulse. The family says they gave no details on his condition to his wife.

Army officials have not yet released the cause of the 43-year-old's death, but said it was not "a result of hostile action," according to a spokesman.
