Facebook pictures posted just days before the bodies of Annie and Robin Korkki were found in their hotel room show the sisters, ages 37 and 42, respectively, enjoying life, surrounded by paradisiacal scenery.
According to the Seychelles Nation newspaper, the two women were found unresponsive in their room at the Maia Luxury Resort on September 22, 2016. Local authorities found no indications of trauma on their bodies. And the cause of the deaths has been determined to be acute pulmonary edema.
Those that suffer pulmonary edema find it difficult to breathe due to excess fluid in the lungs. Mayo Clinic suggests that issues with the heart is the primary cause for this condition, though pneumonia, exposure to toxins, medication, trauma, and even exercise could be culprits as well.
Acute pulmonary edema strikes suddenly and must be treated immediately with supplemental oxygen and medication to avoid succumbing to the condition.
This is quite a tragic story with seemingly no concrete answers as of yet.
