Tragedy as NJ doctor, Daniel Sirovich falls to his death along hiking trail during vacation with fiance, Kristi Kelly in Ibiza. Had been set to start new dream job.
Dr. Daniel Sirovich, 34, of Kearny and his fiancée, Kristi Kelly, originally from Staten Island, had gone hiking along a trail near a cliff on the island off the coast of Spain on Wednesday when he fell 82 feet, according to a GoFundMe page started by friends.
An off-duty nurse at the scene attempted to save Sirovich’s life, but he was already dead, with emergency responders calling off a helicopter sent to airlift him to a local hospital, EuroWeekly reported.
‘Danny was, by far, the person with the most life that we had the pleasure to meet,’ friend Gui Ramos wrote on the fundraising page. ‘He gave 120% in everything he did, from his studies, to work, to loving (his fiancée) Kristi, his family and friends.’
Sirovich had studied at Rutgers University and recently worked at the Kendall Regional Medical Center in Miami, Fla. He was scheduled to take on a new ‘dream’ job in an intensive care unit in Boston, according to a NJ.com report.
‘A horrible end to a beautiful romance.’
Sirovich became engaged to Kelly, who is studying to be a physician’s assistant, in 2016 while on vacation in Germany. The couple had planned to be married next year.
Ironically, the couple were originally supposed to go to a music festival in England, but changed their plans at the last minute when the concert was rained out, Kelly’s mother, Mary Ann Kelly, told via The Staten Island Advance.
Mary Ann said that Sirovich was, ‘…the most beautiful soul you’ve ever met.’
‘He wanted to save people,’ she said, ‘It’s all he wanted to do.’
‘It’s a horrible end to a beautiful romance,’ the mother added.
Sirovich’s death came one day after the 18-year-old daughter of a British entrepreneur was found dead in a swimming pool on the nearby island of Majorca, Spain. Paramedics were unable to revive Josie Clacher when she was found after a night of partying with friends.
