Man says deaf son attacked, robbed in Mexico
KAMLOOPS, B.C. - The father of a deaf man from Kamloops, B.C., says his son was robbed and pushed over a three storey railing while staying at a resort hotel in Mexico.
Ron Simpson says his son Kevin suffered a broken hip, skull fracture and crushed ankle in the attack in Cabo San Lucas last weekend.
He says Kevin was robbed of $850 and pushed off a third floor level of the hotel to the concrete below.
He calls the attack a case of attempted murder.
Simpson says his son is in hospital in San Jose, Mexico, and is in good spirits, but he needs to be brought home to get more medical attention.
The Canadian foreign affairs department says it's investigating the incident. (CHNL)
