Winnipeg mother looking for answers after daughter dies during Caribbean vacation


A Winnipeg mother is returning home without her daughter after a winter vacation ended in tragedy less than a day into their planned week-long holiday.

Holly Twoheart and her daughter Danielle Twoheart, 26, left Winnipeg for an all-inclusive hotel in the Dominican Republic Thursday.

Holly says she went to bed around 2 a.m that first night, but Danielle decided to stay up.

Hotel security woke Holly an hour later and told her Danielle had fallen off a third-floor balcony at the hotel.

“They said there’d been an accident and I looked down and I saw my daughter in the grass,” she told CBC News over the phone late Sunday.

“I was screaming and crying ‘that’s my baby’.”
