Death At Resort
Mexico’s tourism industry has been rocked by accusations that visitors have been drugged at resorts.
The claims follow the death of 20-year old Abbey Conner, who died during a family vacation. The young woman, and her 22-year old brother Austin, were discovered face down in a pool. Hours earlier they had arrived in Iberostar Paraiso del Mar in Playa del Carmen, Mexico with their mother and stepfather.
Rescuers pulled both from the water. Austin later recovered in hospital but doctors pronounced Abbey Conner dead.
Police maintain that the young woman died from ‘accidental drowning’ caused by ‘anoxic brain injury’. Her family maintain that foul play was involved. A family attorney investigating the tragic incident has discovered mishandling of incident by police.
Police failed to question the bartender serving the brother and sister. Neither did the police interview a woman who noticed the pair acting strangely a short time before they were discovered in the pool.
A numerous amount of people have claimed to have suffered blackouts, nausea and sickness while drinking at Iberostar Paraiso del Mar. Several people believe that they were drugged, or that the alcohol they were consuming was tainted.
Some who have come forward have reported robbery following a blackout. After drinking alcohol at the bar, they woke up to find valuable possessions such as wallets missing.
One woman believes that she was sexually assaulted after her and her husband blacked-out after drinking alcohol from the bar.
Others have claimed extortion. When suffering nausea, tourists were taken to a local hospital where large sums of cash were demanded of them. People suspect the resort of being in cahoots with a medical company. The hotel is able to provide the medical company with foreign tourists who they charge a large sum for medical care.
Mexico’s Tourism Woes
Mexico is beleaguered by problems in its tourism industry. In January of this year, a Canadian man was killed during a nightclub shootout which claimed the lives of five people. Officials advise tourists who travel to Mexico not to leave the area around their resorts.
Mexico is a popular destination for American students on spring break. This year, the US government issued a warning to students about the dangers of travelling to 14 of Mexico’s 31 states.
