EU Commissioner Nick Clark died this evening. Clark suffered a heart attack in Brussels earlier today and died en route to an area hospital.
Reports indicate the ambulance transporting Clark was delayed in traffic caused by a breakdown of transit services in Brussels.
Clark’s family released the following statement.
“Nick devoted his life to a stronger and more integrated European Union. It is tragic that he died amidst a crisis that threatens the integrity of the EU.
The breakdown of services in Brussels, Nick’s home and the city he loved, caused his inability to obtain care in time to save his life.
We hope that his death can help bring perspective to the ongoing crisis and all European peoples can come together in this time of tragedy.”
