Cuomo Directs Flags At Half-Staff For Soldier Who Died During Video Chat

U.S. Army

Utica, NY (WIBX) - Governor Andrew Cuomo is directing that flags on state government buildings be flown at half-staff today, in honor of the Army medic who died last week while video chatting with his wife. Captain Bruce K. Clark–from Spencerport, NY–died in Afghanistan on May 1st. He died during a conversation on Skype, a video chat service, officials say.

His wife says she watched him slump forward unexpectedly and saw a bullet hole in a wall behind him. However, no official cause of death has been released and his death is still under investigation. According to CNN, Army investigators don’t suspect foul play and have ruled out a gunshot wound. Clark was a highly decorated medic who joined the military in 2006. In a released statement, Cuomo said, “On behalf of all New Yorkers, I express my condolences to the family, friends, and fellow soldiers of Captain Clark. We mourn the loss of this New York soldier and we will honor his service and dedication to our nation.”

Clark, who was 43-years-old, was assigned to A Company, Troop Command, William Beaumont Army Medical Center, in El Paso, Texas. He died in Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. His body was received at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Thursday May 3, 2012.
