An Army nurse in Afghanistan died Monday in the middle of a Skype conversation with his wife, the El Paso Times reports. The cause of Cpt. Bruce Clark's death has not been disclosed by the Army; an investigation is underway. "Bruce's wife tragically witnessed her husband's death during one of their regular Skype video chats," said a statement from the family. "At the time of the incident, the family was hoping for a rescue and miracle, but later learned that it was not to be." Still, "Bruce's wife and extended family will be forever thankful that he and his wife were together in his last moments." (More US Army stories.)
