[:en]PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Quintana Roo.- Jason Enwere, a US citizen, said that he was assaulted inside a taxi and he almost lost his life trying to defend himself.

Through his Facebook account, his mother, Dorothy Ijeoma Eze, told the story and alerted her countrymen about how dangerous taxi drivers can be in Playa del Carmen.

“On February 19, 2018 my son and I traveled as a family to Mexico for the first time. This trip was supposed to be my 50th birthday celebration” Dorothy explained.

She added that on the 22nd of that month, his son Jason almost lost his life inside a taxi that he took in Playa del Carmen.

According to Jason’s testimony, at one o’clock in the morning he took a taxi in which another passenger was traveling. He was going from Playa del Carmen to Bahía Príncipe Resort and a rate of 200 pesos was agreed with the cab driver.

Jason noticed that the driver took a different route, and almost immediately the passenger in the car took him by the neck warning him of the assault, so the struggle began and he ended up losing consciousness.

Finally, they left him abandoned on a highway, and he walked until he encountered a police patrol car, but the authorities could do little (or nothing) to recover his personal effects.

Jason notó que el taxista tomó otra ruta, y casi en seguida el pasajero que iba en el auto lo tomó por el cuello advirtiéndole del asalto, por lo que comenzó el forcejeo y él terminó perdiendo el conocimiento.

Agrega que cuando se recuperó intentó defenderse y fue golpeado en la cabeza con una roca.

Añade que lo dejaron abandonado en una autopista, por lo que caminó hasta pedir ayuda a una patrulla, pero poco pudieron hacer para recuperar sus cosas.
