Skip to comments.Denver dad in critical condition on Dominican Republic vacation
Posted on 06/27/2019 6:28:30 AM PDT by Red Badger
A Denver dad was so sick that he was booted off his return flight from the Dominican Republic, and has spent the past three days there in critical condition vomiting, alone and screaming in pain in a hospital bed, his relatives said.
Khalid Adkins became so ill on the trip with his daughter that he wasnt allowed to fly home Sunday and has been forced to stay on the embattled Caribbean island, news station KDVR reported.
He said, They pulled me off the plane and made me go to the hospital,' his sister-in-law, Marla Strick, told the news station.
Strick said Adkins was dripping sweat and went to the bathroom to throw up and thats when they kicked him off the plane.
His mystery illness comes as dozens of tourists have reported becoming sick on the island, where at least 11 Americans have died in the last year.

I think it is not wise to vacation there.
Someone is targeting Americans and Americans need to stop going there. My friend suggested DR last September and I just had a bad feeling about it. We went to Florida instead.
I’m sorry for the guy, but I have no desire to contribute to the medical costs of a person who could afford a Caribbean vacation.
Anyone who does, though, knock yourselves out.
The DR was a fairly cheap vacay spot.
Probably even cheaper now................
I have no desire to contribute to the medical costs of a person who is stupid enough to vacation in a spot with the recent situation(s) that have been well documented occurring down there.
Uh, avoid this place, Americans.
Prayers, for his family.
From the description of his symptoms at your link it sounds exactly like ANTIFREEZE POISONING................IOW, MURDER...............
He has died, according to the Denver news this morning.

Oh, man. RIP.
Something is going on here and it’s not accidental.
Why would anybody want to go there?
I’ve been there about 10-12 times. Best vacation I’ve ever had. The last time was about 10 years ago. I won’t go back.
Condolences to Khalid Adkins’ family and friends.
WTF was he doing there in the first place? Doesn’t this guy pay the least bit of attention to what’s been going on there? ... Apparently not ...
Sometimes you make reservations months in advance, to get a package deal. It seems to me that knowledge of the suspicious DR deaths, and probably the pace of their occurrence, has risen over the past 2 or 3 months.
So, people vacationing now may not have been aware of this when making the reservations.
He would have been worse off if he ate at McDonald’s.
how i hate the GoFund me beggars. I hate all beggars in general.
Dominican government officials have said the number of deaths is not unusual and that they are not related.
I will admit that I've seen no reporting as to what is causing these deaths. This guy died after falling ill. No mention of what caused his illness.
...at least 11 Americans have died in the last year.
I wouldnt think twice about this, given the number of US tourists there and actuarial tables, but theyre not dying of heart attacks or strokes.
Delta Airlines is allowing people with reservations to the DR to cancel with no penalty. Most hotels only make you pay for one or two nights upfront but I’ll bet that the all inclusives want a total payment.
