Sydney nurse dies on Fiji honeymoon from mystery illness

Sydney nurse dies on Fiji honeymoon from mystery illness

Davies says they are greatly saddened by the news of Kelly's death and wish to express their honest sympathy to her husband, family and loved ones.

Mrs Clarke's brother Murray Shaw told The Daily Telegraph the nurse died of "severe bilateral pneumonia".

She was then placed in an induced coma - before dying on Friday.

Mr Clarke is now being forced to plan his wife's funeral, but he is thankful for the support of his family and friends, help from the Australian embassy, the community, and the generosity of complete strangers.

Mrs Clarke died later the same night, less than an hour before a medevac team arrived to airlift her to Sydney.

"In the ambulance she started getting severe abdominal pain and I've heard a woman scream like that in my life", Mr Clarke said.

"The Children's Hospital at Westmead extends our deepest condolences and sympathies to Kelly's family, friends and colleagues, in particular, her husband".

Kelly Clarke, a young Sydney woman and recently graduated nurse has died while on her honeymoon in Fiji.

"I just love you and I wish you were here", Mr Clarke said.

Mrs Clarke was a nurse at Westmead Children's Hospital.

It was initially thought Clarke died of the infectious disease, but subsequent blood tests showed otherwise. Local medical professionals disagreed and rushed Kelly to Lautoka Hospital.

"We got a quotation to get her back in a private plane ... for $61,000", he said.

Upon arrival, he said he needed to dress her body in clothes before it was wrapped in a body bag.

Mrs Clarke grew up in Killarney Heights and worked for years at the Kirribilli Club for years, where the couple celebrated their wedding in April.

"I said "stop" and pushed everyone away and me and her mother just held her", he said.

Mr Clarke believed his wife had been vaccinated against typhoid, but she had contracted immune disorder lupus earlier this year.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson said it was providing consular assistance "to the family of an Australian woman who passed away in Fiji".
