The body of Sydney bride Kelly Clarke, who died in Fiji while on her honeymoon, has arrived back in Sydney.
The 24-year-old nurse had complained of stomach pains on Wednesday and her husband Chase says within half an hour, he knew the situation was critical.
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 Network 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.”
