A Mexican vacation has turned into a nightmare for a metro Atlanta couple. A medical emergency landed them in a hospital and now they aren't allowed to leave.
Stephen Johnson and his fiancée Tori Austin told Channel 2 investigative reporter Justin Gray they were vacationing on a Carnival cruise when he went into diabetic shock.
Johnson was taken to the hospital in Progreso, Mexico and spent three days in the intensive care unit. The couple were given a $14,000 bill and said hospital won't let them leave until it's paid. "I appreciate them saving my life, but they can't hold me captive. That's not right," Johnson said.💊💉 Source: @wsbtv
