    Why is the word 'Canadian' attached to this?

    Although very unfortunate, 3 or 4 incidences involving people from Canada out of the tens of thousands of Canadians that go to Mexico over this 1.5year period is a small number in my opinion.

    Only if someone thought people were being attacked for being from Canada would this be extraordinary. And I really doubt that is the case.

    Surely you can tell if it is a fall or an assault. Assault clothes are problable torn due to a strugle and several visable injuries where repeadly been kicked or punched. A fall would be just more along the lines of one big one?

    Trigger would know. His new avator is actually taken right after his confrontation with those damn chavs. His shirt was torn apart and his ipod ripped from his hand.

    Yeah it is a shame..But worth reporting. No sense in denying that these things happen right. And like someone on here said, you will find trouble if you go looking for it. Again I have been 6times to Cancun and I try to not let all this Media stop me from going.
    But I have to say this story wasn't a top story over here. Didn't get much attention..

    I just posted this on the other thread on Cancun Info.

    Lee, try not to worry and have a wonderful time!!

    As Michael mentioned, I've been following this story as Moon Palace is so near and dear to my heart.

    According to what I've read recently, he was airlifted home last night. Drs in Mexico reported that he is 100% brain dead and the family will persue a second opinion in Canada. If that is the case, they want to ensure they can donate his organs.

    Latest I've seen is this:

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20070510.wmexico10/BNStory/National/home

    This article tells a very detailed but totally different account from what the family is saying. With all due respect to the family, this latest article makes slightly more sense to me as someone who has been to Moon Palace many times and knows how it is layed out. I agree that the second story isn't that high, but there are many railings, corners, cement stairs, etc.

    The family says security was chasing him. Perhaps true with the intent to prevent him from hurting himself? Tragically, this wasn't the outcome. Add velocity and mis-judgment to that fall and what do you have? Perhaps it did come to blows with security, but if so, was the fight what did the most damage, or could he truly have fallen as well?

    I've only seen that he was found at the golf course in one article. Perhaps that's not the case? Who knows...

    In the early accounts, it was never mentioned by the family that he was highly intoxicated and that THEY encouraged him to call it a night with one of them escorting him to his room on one of the many back and forth occasions.

    A distraught grieving family member could be grasping for answers they can accept. Anger is an easier emotion to tolerate then grief and regret.

    For the family's sake, let's hope the Canadian doctors can determine if his injuries could have been the result of a fall, or if the family's accounts of what happened are more acccurate. I can be a keyboard juror until the cows come home, but we will never know all the facts.

    Regardless, I'm deeply saddened for the family.
