A Gofundme page which has raised $13,282 of a $50,000 goal states, “On Wednesday, Nov 27th our family was hit with a tragic accident. While on the Carnival Vista cruise, the family took a tour bus to Jaguar Paw Cave in Belize. As they were returning from this tour, the bus had a head-on collision that resulted in the loss of two beloved family members, my uncle Adrian and aunt Sara Armijo. Their son David and daughter Byanca who were also on the tour bus sustained multiple injuries. They both continue to be hospitalized in Florida undergoing medical treatments necessary. Not only are they away from there jobs, but they will also have medical bills along with funeral cost that may not be covered to lay their parents to rest. I have created this page for my cousins David and Byanca for anyone who would like to help during this difficult time. All money raised will go directly to them. No amount is too little. Please take the time and open your heart during this holiday season to help our loving family. Please feel free to share. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and ask for your continuous prayers.
