    From today's MSN UK: http://news.uk.msn.com/Article.aspx?cp-documentid=2771071



    A British man has died in Mexico after plunging from the 14th floor of a five-star hotel.

    The tragedy happened at the Riu in the popular resort of Cancun following what is thought to have been an argument.

    Mexican police said the person who died was a 34-year-old British man. A woman, who has not been named, has been questioned in the case.

    Antonia Salmeron, a spokeswoman for the attorney general's office in the state of Quintana Roo, where Cancun is located, said: "We don't know precisely what happened. The only thing that hotel employees and guards have said is that the couple had a very forceful argument.

    "Shouting was heard in the room and later there was a report that a man had fallen from the 14th floor."

    Mrs Salmeron said police were investigating whether a scuffle had occurred in the room.

    Yep. Just the kind of endearing post that represents the caring and maturity of some of our visitors: Callous and misspelled. I guess the human tragedy doesn't mean anything.
