Senior trip to Dominican Republic descends into disaster after group falls ill
NY Post

A group of Oklahoma teens’ senior trip to the Dominican Republic was ruined when they fell sick with a mysterious illness.

The recent Deer Creek High School graduates flew on June 8 to the embattled Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, where at least two Americans have died and others have fallen ill, news station KOTV reported.

Liz McLaughlin said her daughter, Libby, was among seven members of the group who fell sick — and they have “no idea what’s going on.”

“We just don’t know what is happening,” McLaughlin told the news station. “Is it the water? Is it the ice? Is it the food? Is it the food handling? Is it the pesticides?”

For the first day, the teens enjoyed themselves hanging out on the beach. But after dining at the resort’s Japanese restaurant, the trip took a turn for the worse, according to KOCO.


“I just woke up, and my stomach was cramping and I was sweating,” Bennet Hill told KOCO. “I was freezing.”

Hill and the six others were rushed by ambulance to the hospital, where they received anti-nausea medicine.

“We’ve been hooked up to IVs since we first got here with antibiotics, just getting hydrated,” Hill said.

Maybe it’s time to reconsider a trip to that shite hole?

Why are people still going there? My gosh, if you go after all of these warnings, you deserve to die.

This could have been avoidable. There are plenty of coastal resorts in the United States.

Sounds like food poisoning, something that happens every minute right here in the USA

The Dominican republic doesn’t have Marvin Zindler from Houston to throw the bull shite flag on their inspections by yelling they had SLIME IN THE ICE MACHINE!!

RIP Marv

How hard would it be to obtain samples of the drinks and food?

I've had it bad twice. Thought I was going to die.

Both times from Pizza Hut. (separate stores) Both times pizza, not the shitty salad bar.

Will never eat there again.

I went to the Hard Rock in the DR last year and liked it. Glad I didn't die. Thought about taking the kids there this summer - that would have been bad.

People only go there bc it’s cheap.

The Dominicans are terrible at hospitality.
