Body of Sydney bride returns home from Fiji
The body of a young nurse who died in Fiji while on her honeymoon has arrived back in Sydney.
Kelly Clarke, 24, complained of stomach pains on Wednesday and her husband Chase says within half an hour, he knew the situation was critical.
She died about 30 hours later in Lautoka Hospital, north of Nadi.
Ms Clarke, a nurse at Westmead Children's Hospital, was initially thought to have typhoid, however her family has since revealed she died of severe bilateral pneumonia.
A private plane carrying the body of Ms Clarke arrived in Sydney on Tuesday morning, Nine Network reports.
Ms Clarke's family has remembered her as an 'amazing human being' who had a big heart and time for anyone.
Her husband says it was a 'horrible situation' that should never have happened.
'She told me she was scared she was going to die,' he told the Seven Ne twork on Sunday.
'I told her I loved her.'
'This horrible situation shouldn't have happened,' Chase said.
Ms Clarke's colleagues at Westmead Children's Hospital have remembered her as a dedicated nurse with a warm and empathetic personality.
'In her short time at the hospital, Kelly had a big impact and quickly became a much-loved member of the team,' a hospital spokesman told AAP on Tuesday.
'She is remembered for her warm and empathetic personality and for always taking the time to go above and beyond for her patients.'
