TORONTO - A Canadian tourist has died in the Mexican resort of Cancun.

Local media reports say the 21-year-old, identified as Sydney Taylor, died early Tuesday after apparently falling about 10 metres from the balcony of her second-floor hotel room.

They say the victim was identified by her Canadian roommate.

There was no immediate word on the woman‘s hometown, but a spokesman for Acadia University in Nova Scotia says the victim graduated from the school last month.

In Ottawa, Foreign Affairs confirmed that a Canadian had died in Mexico, but did not provide any details.

It says Canadian consular officials are in contact with local authorities to gather more information and that consular assistance is being provided both in Mexico and to the woman‘s relatives in Canada.
