Two From Mansfield Dead After Drowning in Cancun
A late night swim turned fatal as two women from Mansfield died while on vacation in Cancun, Mexico.
The two women, identified as Donna Batta and Gail Binmore, traveled to Cancun for a vacation last Friday along with two other friends.
While one left on Tuesday, the remaining three went for a late night swim at the Grand Park Royal hotel.
With the water reaching their knees, the current was too strong for the three women and North Attleboro resident Lisa Marie Tondreault was the only person to escape the rough waters and strong undertow.
Batta is survived by her husband and both women leave children in their late teens/early 20s.
