The latest victim happens to be Tracy Jerome Jester Jr., 31, of Forsyth, Georgia. It was said that he died on March 17 as a result of “respiratory issues,” after a day of sightseeing in the Caribbean country. His mom told WSB-TV last week that she spoke with her son during his time away and he seemed fine. However, he mentioned that he drank a soda that didn’t taste right. He’d been staying at a resort with his sister, but it was not immediately clear which one.

Moore eventually got a call from Jester’s sister who let her know that her brother was struggling to breathe.

“She called me about 3:30 in the morning and she told me he was calling her saying he couldn’t breathe, just saying, ‘Mama, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe,’” Moore told the outlet. Jester’s sister also told ABC News: “He just dropped to his knees and started throwing up blood, and was calling for Mama.”

Jester’s death is the latest in a recent spate of fatalities among US tourists visiting the county. Since June 2018, over a dozen Americans have died in a variety of tragic incidents. US authorities do believe bootleg alcohol may have something to do with the random deaths. So far, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana have reportedly removed all liquor dispensers in hotel room minibars. The US says they are still investigation.
