As FBI officials investigate the death of an American vacationing in Mexico, Mexican authorities revealed Tuesday night that 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson may be alive and receiving professional medical attention. health for several hours before authorities arrived and she was pronounced dead, ABC News has learned.
The video featured is from a previous report.
The medical professional at the scene reportedly told Robinson’s friends that Robinson was drunk, dehydrated and that they should take him to the hospital. However, they refused to do so, according to authorities.
The new report differs significantly from the original autopsy report obtained by ABC News, which said medical professionals arrived at Robinson’s villa at 3 p.m. and she was pronounced dead within 15 minutes. The autopsy revealed that Robinson had died from a serious spinal cord injury and a dislocated neck.
Authorities did not respond to ABC News’ request for comment on the difference between their report and the autopsy.
According to the new police report, Robinson’s friends requested medical attention at 2:13 p.m. After a GP from American Medical Center arrived at the Puerto Los Cabos address, Robinson’s friends told the health professional that she had been drinking a lot of alcohol. .
Medical staff said they noticed Robinson had a poor verbal response, was intoxicated and dehydrated, but had stable vital signs, according to the police report. The medical professional at the scene advised Robinson’s friends to transfer her to hospital, but her friends insisted that she stay at the villa, according to the report.
At 4:20 p.m., Robinson began to convulse, which is when one of Robinson’s friends, Wenter Essence Donovan, dialed 911. When emergency medical professionals arrived, the Police report indicates that Robinson began having difficulty breathing and having a decreased pulse.
At 4.49pm, the GP said they had stopped feeling Robinson’s pulse and started CPR until paramedics arrived. They continued with 14 CPR sessions and five doses of adrenaline without success. Robinson went into a state of asystole (a type of cardiac arrest), according to the police report. Robinson was pronounced dead at 5:57 p.m., the report said.
According to the new police report, Mexican authorities were notified by Donovan around 5 p.m. local time of Robinson’s condition.
Donovan and all of Robinson’s friends who were with her in Cabo did not respond to ABC News’ repeated requests for comment.
The FBI opened an investigation into Robinson’s death earlier this month, which is being investigated by Mexican authorities as femicide, a form of gender-based violence.
Robinson, from Charlotte, North Carolina, traveled to the resort town of San Jose del Cabo on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula with six friends on October 28.
They stayed in a rental villa in Fundadores, an exclusive gated community with vacation homes and a private beach club, according to Robinson’s family.
The next day, Robinson’s parents said they received a frantic phone call from their daughter’s friends saying she had died.
With all the new and developing information, Robinson’s family is still looking for answers from friends who know what happened that weekend in Cabo. Sallamondra Robinson, Shanquella Robinson’s mother, said she was glad the FBI stepped in to help solve her daughter’s case so it “wouldn’t be in vain”.
“I would like to see each of them sent back to Mexico because their plan was to come back here thinking they weren’t going to be prosecuted,” Robinson told ABC News. “He was a caring person…and I want them to always remember that. We’re going to keep his legacy alive.”
