A Georgia man has died of a 'respiratory illness' while on holiday in the Dominican Republic - becoming the 13th American to die there in under a year.
Jerome Jester Jr. of Forsyth, Georgia, died on March 17 this year just a day after going sightseeing in the Caribbean nation, according to his family.
The 31-year-old had been on vacation with his sister, who called for an ambulance after he started having difficulty breathing.
Jester's sister told ABC News: 'He just dropped to his knees and started throwing up blood, and was calling for Mama.'
