An American model, 32-year-old Tiffany Karhanek drowned while on vacation with her 65-year-old husband at the Hopkins Bay Resort, last Saturday.
Karhanek arrived in Belize on February 26 from Miami and drowned the following day during a kayaking trip with her husband.
The husband, Micheal Karhanek, said he fell asleep and when he woke up he saw his wife’s body floating in the sea.
Police responded to the scene at 5:40 p.m. on Saturday and found Mr. Karhanek and a few village residents fishing the body out of the water.
Police investigations into the matter are ongoing and authorities are not saying much. Karhanek, however, becomes the latest in a string of foreigners to have died in the country while on vacation within the last few months.
She was a model at Pinkerton Model and Talent Company in Los Angeles, California.
