Another blasé Western couple deliver themselves into the Third World maw

A Canadian couple went to Ecuador and, while “strolling through the woods” (yes, that’s what nice white Westerners do, they visit Third World countries and go “strolling through the woods,” or stay in an unsecured hotel cabin on a beach) were set upon by a machete wielding gang who demanded money. The woman in terror threw herself 50 feet off the side of a mountain to escape and is now is in the hospital for several months. As the Daily Mail article indicates, the Ecuadoran government has concealed the facts.
