What was meant to be a relaxing vacation has become anything but for one unfortunate Ottawa citizen. 29-year-old Lexi York was staying at the Grand Bahaia Principe resort in Tulum, Mexico and was alone for one night, having arrived a day earlier than her mother. A recent acquaintance from dinner only hours before convinced her to open her door and then forced his way inside the room, beating her to the point of unconsciousness. When she awoke her eyes were swollen shut and she had to feel her way out of the room to get help. What followed was 9 hours of reconstructive surgery at a hospital in Cancun. Ms. York also sustained nerve damage to her face. Currently she is in recovery, but has not been cleared to return home to Canada.
