PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Q. Roo — An American family’s luxury vacation ended in tragedy when a brother and sister in their early 20s drank by the pool and were found floating face down and unconscious at a five-star Mexican resort. The girl died.
The Daily Mail reports that Abbey Conner, 20, and her brother Austin, 22, were on a family vacation to Paraiso del Mar, a five-star resort just north of Playa del Carmen. They had drinks at the pool bar. Next thing Abbey was found floating in the pool, foam coming out her nose. Austin was also found floating in the pool. Abbey later died after she was declared brain-dead.
The family from Pewaukee, Wisconsin were on the resort property for only a couple of hours with their mother Ginny and their stepfather John McGowan, before both Abbey and Austin were found face down in the pool.
After Abbey was declared brain dead she was eventually taken off life support.
The last thing Austin remembers is doing a shot that looked like a ‘Jägerbomb’ — a shot of Jägermeister commonly mixed with beer or Red Bull, with a group of young men that had invited them for a drink. They drank one together and that was it.
The next thing Austin recalls is waking up in an ambulance.
“I’ve been in college for five years and had my fair share of drinks before,” Austin said. “No way in hell I’m putting my face down in a pool and going to sleep.”
“Knowing that we got played or are victims of some sick person drugging us is almost surreal,” he said.
At 6’2″ and 155lbs, he didn’t feel drunk before he blacked out. They also were meeting their parents for dinner and weren’t looking to get drunk.
