According to information obtained by the Diario de Yucatán, Medina García was recording a video with her three grandsons, but she forgot to watch her step and by accident she fell into the cave, which has a deep of 40 meters. Unfortunately the woman died almost immediately.

It was reported that the woman was from the Netherlands and she was married with a unidentified man from the town of Akil, but they used to live together in Merida.

It was the second time that she was visiting the cave due to her attraction to the natural majesty of the place.
