Body of nurse who died while Skyping arrives in NY

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- The body of a U.S. Army nurse who died suddenly in Afghanistan during a computer video chat with his wife has arrived in western New York.

More than 100 mourners and admirers assembled at a Rochester airport Saturday to pay tribute to Capt. Bruce Kevin Clark.

Clark's wife is from Spencerport. He and his family lived there for six years before he joined the Army in 2006.

Military officials say Clark's wife, Susan Orellana-Clark, was in Texas chatting with him via Skype on April 30 when he collapsed. Army officials say the investigation into the death is continuing.

His funeral is scheduled for Tuesday in Spencerport.

Clark grew up in Michigan. He was assigned to a medical center in El Paso and then deployed overseas in March.
