American Tourists Die at Same Dominican Republic Hotel Within 5 Days

Schaup-Werner and her husband had been on the island celebrating her ninth anniversary when she suddenly collapsed after having a drink, McDonald told Fox.

"It was, at first, a little confusing that there was such a strong parallel ... it immediately caused serious concern for us", said Jay McDonald, acting as the family spokesman for Schaup-Werner's grieving husband, Daniel Werner. Werner reportedly performed CPR but he and emergency medical responders were unable to revive her.

"He [Dan Werner] was understandably in shock but the whole thing was just so stunning", McDonald said.

"The freakish issue of the same hotel and these things happening within days of each other and the complete unexpected nature of what happened to Miranda. we just want to understand this", the family's spokesman said.

More than 6 million tourists visit the Dominican Republic each year.

"The U.S. Department of State and our embassies and consulates abroad have no greater responsibility than the protection of U.S. citizens overseas".

"We offer our sincerest condolences to the families for their loss", it said.

Reports say there were no signs of violence, and the Dominican Republic National Police confirmed an autopsy concluded that respiratory failure and pulmonary edema were the causes of death.

Relatives told CNN affiliate WBAL that Holmes and Day were engaged. They were supposed to fly back home the day they were found.

The couple posted photos of themselves on Facebook enjoying time on the beach, wading in the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean, riding all-terrain vehicles and cruising on a boat.

"At one point, she was sitting there happily smiling and taking pictures and the next moment she was in acute pain and called out for Dan and she collapsed", McDonald told WFMZ.

The Dominican Republic National Police say Holmes and Day died of the same cause as Schaup-Werner. The couple were checking out five days later when they were found.

The Regional Institute of Forensic Sciences said that, in the case of Holmes and Day, further tests are required.
