Sydney Family Mourns Nurse After Fiji Death

The husband of a Sydney nurse who died in Fiji says the "horrible situation" should never have happened.

Kelly Clarke, 24, complained of stomach pains on Wednesday and her husband Chase says within half an hour, he knew the situation had become critical and required a hospital trip.

"She told me she was scared she was going to die," he told the Seven Network on Sunday.

"I told her I loved her."

Ms Clarke was initially thought to have typhoid, however her family has since revealed she died of severe bilateral pneumonia.

"This horrible situation shouldn't have happened," Chase said.

Ms Clarke's family has remembered her as an "amazing human being" who had a big heart and time for anyone.

The Department of Foreign Affairs is providing consular assistance to the family.
