Bleach instead of soda: the story of another victim hotel in the Dominican Republic
A woman from New York claims that she was bleeding from a bottle of soda filled with bleach at the same resort in the Dominican Republic, where at least three American tourists died suddenly.
This incident allegedly occurred at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana resort in October 2018, and followed a series of allegations against the resort.
43-year-old Avilda Montes told Fox Newsthat, settling in a luxurious room at the resort, she drank a bottle of soda from the minibar. The drink, in her words, "turned out to be bleach."
“I was urgently sent to a medic and put on an IV drip,” she continued.
“I received chemical burns all over my mouth,” the woman says.
Then the hotel said that they were “investigating” the accident and offered Montes a “free massage” in exchange for her silence and “relieving them of any responsibility”.
“I refused, because, frankly, I didn’t know if I would have any problems as soon as I got home,” she said. In a conversation with Fox News, the woman said that she had "documents from the doctor that she received when she drank the bleach."
Montes was not the only one who blamed this resort in the last few weeks. So, a couple from Colorado announced that they filed a lawsuit against a group of resorts Bahia Principe in the Dominican Republic, claiming to be admitted to hospital because of pesticides after resting in a hotel in the chain last year. Keylinn Kull and Tom Schwander said they were staying at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana in the same hotel where a couple from Maryland died in their room under unclear circumstances.
“I sincerely believe in telling the truth,” said Keilnn. “This is too much for one resort.”

Montes, meanwhile, said she tried to contact a lawyer because of a bleach case, but to no avail. At the same time, the woman was confident that her case was the work of the “disgruntled employee” of the resort.
“There are times when you are on vacation, lying on the beach and asking the workers to bring you something,” said Montes.
“There are many poor people working in this country, and they watch people who enjoy life day after day,” she added.
Groups of experts and inspectors from several international agencies conducted tests at resorts in the Dominican Republic after a series of American deaths.
Officials in the United States and the Dominican Republic do not exclude that these deaths could have been caused by unnatural causes.
