Steve Harvey hosting event in Dominican Republic resort where tourists died

The Hotel Riu Palace Macao

Dana Flowers was part of a group that traveled to the Dominican Republic in April for their annual trip.

Travel agencies in Ottawa say interest in the Dominican Republic hasn't waned; it is still a popular destination.

October, 2018: Awilda Montes, 43, of NY, claims she drank a bottle of soda from the minibar at the Grand Bahia Principe Resort in La Romana that 'turned out to be bleach.' She survived but suffered chemical burns.

Sturdivant, a 45-year-old filmmaker who lives in Atlanta and was not on the trip, said he was notified of Allen's death from friends.

At least seven other American tourists have died at resorts within the Dominican Republic over the past year, either from respiratory illnesses or a heart attack, CBS News reported. "In all the years I knew her, I never knew her to have a heart attack".

"I can't blame them", he said of tourists who may be rethinking their travel plans.

Joseph is the ninth relatively healthy person to die under odd circumstances in the Dominican Republic in the past year. "Everyone thinks it won't happen to them but I can bet on it, the people who died thought the same thing".

Curran's death is the latest in a rash of US tourist deaths in the Dominican Republic under mysterious medical circumstances, which mostly involve people who were believed to be generally healthy and showed no signs of illness before their trips. Three Americans - a couple from Maryland and a woman from Pennsylvania - died within a few days of each other last month at nearby hotels in the same resort.

"We are closely monitoring ongoing investigations by Dominican authorities into several recent deaths of USA citizens in the Dominican Republic", the statement continued. He said about 54 out of the 114 visitors who stayed at the Hotel Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana fell ill during the trip.

Siragusa is referring to the sixth and seventh American vacationers to die in the Dominican Republic.

Zeier said she is simply following the wishes of her family democracy. Coupled with separate reports of violence, including the attempted murder of Major League baseball legend David Ortiz, there seemed to be a bona fide crisis in the Dominican Republic - it just was unclear what to attribute it to. Life is too short to die on vacation.

"Without knowing what is happening over there and why this is happening, they just didn't feel comfortable going there so we made a decision to change our trip to Mexico instead", Zeier said. Holmes was listed as having an enlarged heart and cirrhosis of the liver.

Joseph Allen of Avenel, New Jersey, is confirmed to be the ninth American tourist to die at a Dominican Republic resort under mysterious circumstances while visiting the Caribbean country. The friends told his sister he showered and went out that night, despite the fact that he still wasn't feeling well.

On Tuesday, June 18, Hard Rock officials had this to say in a statement that was obtained by Los Angeles magazine.
