An Ottawa-area woman was killed in a balcony collapse while on her honeymoon on the Mayan riviera in Mexico.

It happened on Wednesday when Shannon Amy Guy, 24, stepped onto a third-floor balcony at the Oasis Tulum resort to take a photo with another couple.

The two other Canadians were injured.

Guy and her husband Paul have two young girls, who were left in the care of family members while they were away.

Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs is working with Mexican officials to uncover more details.
