Canadian woman grieves husband’s drowning in Cancun
CANCUN, Q. Roo — A Canadian woman is grieving alone in Cancun after her husband drowned while swimming on Wednesday May 11.
Zoltan Zadori, a truck driver from Kitchener, Ont., was in the water with his wife, Cindy McPherson, when the couple was swept out to sea off the coast of Cancun.
“The waves were really strong and they kept going over our heads and pulling us out further,” McPherson told CTV Kitchener over the phone from Mexico.
Both McPherson and Zadori were pulled to shore, but paramedics were unable to resuscitate Zadori. He was pronounced dead shortly after.
McPherson says she has been unable to eat or sleep since her husband’s death. She has been alone since the tragedy, but family members are on their way to help her.
“He meant the world to me … and he’s going to be missed,” she said.
The couple married in 2014 and recently started a life together. Zadori has two children from a previous marriage and worked as a truck driver in Guelph, Ont.
The couple was staying at the Grand Oasis Sens resort in Cancun.
McPherson said she has faced difficulty making funeral arrangements and said her husband’s wedding ring and other jewelry has disappeared since his death.
“Everybody just can’t believe this has happened,” she said.
A funeral for Zadori is being arranged in Canada for sometime next week.
