You've booked a Dominican Republic vacation. Do you go, or cancel?

You've booked a Dominican Republic vacation. Do you go, or cancel?

Since their deaths were reported, the deaths of several other American tourists in the Dominican Republic have come to light. His niece, Chloe Arnold, told Fox News on Sunday that Wallace had fallen ill nearly immediately after having had a scotch from his hotel room's minibar. "He started feeling very sick, he had blood in his urine and stool right afterward", she recounted, according to Fox. The hotel doctor advised him to go to the hospital two days later, and he died the next day.

Arnold said her uncle, an avid traveler, had been in relatively good health and just the month before had been skiing in Lake Tahoe. Wallace died the day of the wedding, Tickenoff told the station.

News of the deaths has drawn attention to earlier deaths of American tourists at island resorts that received no publicity at the time - some now suspect - may have been part of a pattern.

"Fit and healthy" David Harrison, from Maryland, died aged 45 at the Hard Rock last July.

He died three days later, and Arnold claims that authorities have not given them a cause of death. His family says Wallace became ill after getting a drink from the hotel's minibar.

Corcoran said no autopsy has been done on her brother but she was told he suffered a heart attack.

The relatives of Robert Bell Wallace told Fox News on Sunday they made a decision to share the story of his death at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino resort in light of the recent deaths of American tourists on the Caribbean island. The deaths are now being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"When all these people started passing, I stopped and thought to myself, 'How can all these people have the same cause of death as David?' " she told The Washington Post.

On May 25, Miranda Schaup-Werner also had a drink from the minibar and collapsed.

Thirty members of the family took off for the Dominican Republic to be in place for Tickenoff's wedding on April 14.

Almost seven million tourists visit the Dominican Republic and most are from the U.S.

"We don't want to jump to conclusions, but it seems like the embassy, sounds like now the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is involved", Tickenhoff said.

A team of experts from the US Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization has since traveled to the hotels and is conducting tests at the resort where the three died. "We have some reporters on the ground that are assisting us in gathering information that might be available", he told AFP.
