BREAKING: ANOTHER AMERICAN TOURIST DEAD: Colorado dad dies alone in Dominican Republic after airline says he’s too sick to fly home

A man from Denver who was forced off his flight home from the Dominican Republic has died.

Fox 31 Denver reports that the family of Khalid Adkins, who had been hospitalized in critical condition in Santo Domingo since Sunday, confirmed on Wednesday that he died.

Adkins’s sister-in-law told the news station that Adkins had been forced to leave the plane set for a flight back to Denver as he was sweating profusely and vomited in the plane’s bathroom. He had been visiting the Dominican Republic with his adult daughter, who had already returned to Denver when her father was kicked off his flight home.

As of Tuesday, Adkins’ family said he was in critical condition but conscious — vomiting and in extreme pain, according to the New York Post.

“They transferred him to Santo Domingo and [said] that his breathing is really bad and that his kidneys were failing,” his sister-in-law told the New York Post.

The New York Post report indicates that Adkins did not have immediate access to dialysis, and his family reportedly said on a GoFundMe campaign page that it would cost $20,000 to fly Atkins back to the United States in a medivac.

It is not known at this time where Adkins was staying in the Dominican Republic, or when or how he became ill. It is also not yet known what airline carrier forced him from his flight home.
