A Canadian couple appears to have died during a steamy hot tub session in Mexico.

According to Daily Mail, 67-year-old Charles McKenzie and his wife Dorothy, 63, were in Quintana Roo for their daughter's wedding.

The Nova Scotia residents were staying on the fourth floor of the Playacar Palace hotel in the resort city of Playa del Carmen.

Just two days before the November 12 wedding, their 35-year-old daughter found them dead in their hotel room's whirlpool spa at approximately 10 am. They were said to be naked and engaged in a sexual embrace when their bodies were discovered.

Investigators found no signs of forced entry, and everything in their hotel room seemed to be in order.

Playacar Palace spokesman David Rubeo told The Canadian Press,

The room was perfectly fine. All the equipment was working perfectly.

An autopsy soon revealed Charles McKenzie suffered a fatal heart attack and fell onto his wife, who drowned shortly after.

It isn't clear how long they were dead before their bodies were found.

Also unclear is whether the wedding was postponed or canceled.

Mr. McKenzie's brother-in-law said,

I know that they're more concerned about the remains and cremation and things like that. I don't really know about the wedding.

An investigation of the deaths is ongoing.
