From El Paso, Texas, Susan Orellana-Clark watched her husband, Army Medical Center nurse Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark, die through a Skype video chat, Monday in Afghanistan.

Army officials have not released the cause of death for Capt. Clark, but said: "Bruce's wife tragically witnessed her husband's death during one of their regular Skype video chats."

"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."

U.S. and Australian special operations soldiers in Afghanistan honored Capt. Clark this week, according to the statement.

Capt. Clark was deployed in March to support U.S. and coalition efforts in Afghanistan. He had two children.
