A Canadian woman and a fellow American tourist who were travelling together in Vietnam have both died from unexplained medical problems after they had to be taken to hospital, local media are reporting.
The two women were staying in the same hotel room in the coastal resort city of Nha Trang in south Vietnam.
Within 48 hours last week, the two suffered acute respiratory and cardiac problems and died while under intensive care at Khanh Hoa provincial hospital, the newspaper Thanh Nien reported.
The paper said the Canadian woman was 26-year-old Cathy Huynh and the American traveller was 27-year-old Karin Joy Bowerman.
An unnamed official with the Khanh Hoa Province Health Department told the newspaper Tuoi Tre that it’s likely that the two women had suffered poisoning.
Neither woman had any apparent wounds or injuries, Thanh Nien said, quoting Pham Dinh Chi, a physician and hospital deputy director, as saying that doctors were waiting for forensic test results.
