SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Heartache was felt among doctors and nurses at Kendall Regional Hospital after tragically losing one of their colleagues.
“It’s definitely not going to be the same in the ER,” Michelle Asseo, Sirovich’s co-worker, said.
Friends of Dr. Daniel Sirovich said he was on a hiking tour with his fiancee in Ibiza on Wednesday when he tried to take a picture and somehow lost his footing and fell to his death. He was 34 years old.
“It’s devastating. Honestly, if you knew him you were lucky. If you didn’t, it’s your loss. He was a rare beautiful soul,” Michelle Asseo, Sirovich’s co-worker, said.
Loved ones said Sirovich was a resident at Kendall Regional Medical Center, preparing to be a doctor at an intensive care trauma unit in Boston.
Kendall Regional Medical Center issued the following statement after Sirovich’s death:
“Dr. Daniel Sirovich was a wonderful member of the Kendall Regional Medical Center family as he spent three years here as an Emergency Medicine Resident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and all that knew him.”
Family and friends posted pictures and tributes to social media to express their grief for a brother and a friend who dedicated his life to helping others.
“He had a mission to save lives. He did that all the way through, and he wouldn’t have wanted anything otherwise,” Asseo said.
Kendall Regional Hospital will be holding a vigil for Sirovich Wednesday evening.
As of Monday afternoon, his body remained in Spain. His family is working to have it transported back home for a proper burial.
