    ok, great now mexico is being blamed on something else when it could just have been the resorts fault not the whole country!

  • menia ozukum

    There is no doubt that there is some kind of a deal going on between medical community and resort manager or workers. No doubt

    How did she end up with a fractured skull? It seems that it would be difficult to get the back of her head hit like that to need stitches and suffer a brain injury unless she was assaulted with the piece of concrete maybe? It is suspicious.

    What he SHOULD have stated: “But the investigation done by both state and federal Cartels concluded…” let’s be real here…

  • The Appliance Guru

    Thats why most Americans have guns and no passports. Stay in the U.S where its safe and laws arent corrupt. I love the USA!

  • murdy1975

    lol Megan Kelly reduced to a daytime talk show.. Much like Oprah, Ellen, Dr.Phill..etc.. Fox to Msn… no one wants her.. what does that tell you?

  • Keifu Chan

    So obvious what is happening. The hospital is working with the bartender. And asking for a huge payment before treatment? Duh. Just follow the money.

  • Jolene Windham

    They issue warnings to black people and countries that they don’t think it’s safe in the United States for black people and they’re exactly right!

  • April Smith

    Wow 😮 you see all of what’s been going on within the last 6 months all these deaths, and ppl getting sick on those islands!!!!! Most were from that mini bar at a particular place… wow smfh 🤦🏼‍♀️ reminder to self: No drinking while on vacation.. seems like it’s all about money! Instead you end up dead or in real bad shape…. beware of traveling anywhere

  • Aamna Here

    If you want to visit any foreign country, make sure you know at least one local person there whom you can rely on. They know which places have a reputation and which places are the safest. All countries have shady spots where crime is off the charts so don't just listen to what your family and friends tell you. Listen to what a local friend tells you.

    I'm from Mexico and this does happen a lot visitors being drugged, killed and kidnapped this is sad

  • Steve Cray

    Why don't we charge all the Mexicans who come to American hospitals and use our emergency rooms as their primary care physicians upfront charges? They come here they get free medical care and we go down there and spend billions of dollars and they continue to rip us off. Thank God for Donald Trump! My mother taught me a long time ago that you can't put the morals that were instilled in you into someone else. They simply don't possess the same morals that we do.

    Who could feel good about going to Mexico ……..on vacation. Geez. Horrible police, officials, and just about everything else. Overrun by drugs and drug cartels. Never been, never will go.

  • Bella Ruiz

    I am from Mexico and it makes me very sad that they had to go through this. It is unfortunate because Mexico is a wonderful country with a beautiful culture, cuisine and people. There is one thing for sure I will mention; civilians are extremely welcoming to foreigners, I would agree that the government institutions and the security authorities are very corrupted. Those are the ones that even the Mexican people don't trust in. Just like the people from the USA are being extremely judged because of the president they have today, I believe that not everybody is racist or white supremacist.

    And yes, I would advise the people from USA ( I am not saying American or North American, because Mexico is also part of it) until things calm down a little, even regular people are suffering from this corruption and cartel. Things now are worse because we finally got a good president who is kicking out every corrupted person in the presidential  bureau and this is getting them really mad and are retaliating.Most of my family is well off in MX, but they are suffering the war of the cartel people. So yes, I would say to the world not to go there yet. I love and miss my country with all my heart, but if things like this are going to happen, do not go, wait until things get better and you can enjoy the blessings of my homeland.

    Next anniversary go to New Orleans…..plenty of drinks and fun and entertainment.Like EVERYWHERE, always watch over your drinks.  Never leave your drinks unattended.When we go there (New Orleans) we usually buy wine and liquor and drink in the hotel room or around the pool.  Going out, we'll buy half bottles of wine/champagneand have the bottled opened at the table.

  • liz

    I've always been told to never vacation in Mexico. And this is another example why. Most I know go to Cuba or Dominican.

    People please be cautious when you go to unfamiliar places! Do not drink alcohol or go to bars/night clubs, and be sure to have one of you taste the drink beforehand as a test, even if it isn't alcohol. Ladies, we have a wonderful gift called intuitions..Trust it and use it as a guide. Be safe and stay focus of your surroundings. Enjoy your vacations, honeymoon or time away from struggles and stress of life. Good luck!

    Painting every part of Mexico in a bad light because of something that happens everyday, everywhere. Guess what. People don’t get justice in the states and in Canada for the same incidences. Like seriously?

  • Judith Gonzalez

    It’s weird how she said the bartender kept pouring the drink and dumping it and making another one. Why didn’t she question anything. I say, a lot is common sense. Don’t understand why anyone would do this on purpose to scare the tourists away when Mexico depends on them. Very sad, l love Cancun, always a great time !

  • Rietta Carson

    I hear more horror stories coming from trips to Mexico than any other location in the world. And that is not only centered around alcohol.

  • Hilda Klotz

    I have been in Cancun and I have witnessed how Americans drink, very heavily until they passed out. You can find all kind of tourists in the beach early in the morning sleeping in the sand at the beach. Don’t blame the Mexicans or authorities, blame your drinking habits. Stay sober💚

  • M. Bhurt

    This is a pattern, very disturbing pattern, white tourists go to Mexico & they drink like idiots. What else do you expect.
