A Denver man has passed away after falling ill while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.
#KhalidAdkins traveled to the DR with his daughter last week and he suddenly became sick while there.
This past Sunday, when Adkins tried to fly back to the U.S., he was reportedly dripping in sweat and vomited in the plane’s restroom, his sister-in-law Marla Strick told the station. He was then forced to get off the plane.
Adkins has been hospitalized since then in Santa Domingo.
Doctors told the family at the time that they could try to find dialysis in Santo Domingo or take him to the U.S. for via helicopter ambulance.
An air ambulance flight to the U.S. costs an estimated $20,000.
At least 10 Americans have reportedly died after visiting the Caribbean country this year, Adkins would make 11.
