A “free-spirited” Maryland woman vacationing in Florida died when she got stuck in the window of her hotel room, authorities said.
Sydney Therriault, 22, of Beallsville had been staying earlier this month at the Pelican RV Resort & Marina in Grassy Key, Florida, Fox Baltimore reported.
“It appeared she did not have a hotel key was attempting to make entry to her room via the window,” the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.
But when she tried to enter the window, she became stuck and asphyxiated, authorities said.
Emergency responders arrived around 7:28 a.m. on March 18 and pronounced her dead.
No foul play is suspected in the case, authorities said.
It’s unclear how she became stuck, but photos of the hotel showed rooms with what appear to be rectangular, tempered-glass windows.
Friends remembered Therriault as “selfless” and a “free spirited soul.”
“You’re [sic] free spirit to travel and help people and to see the world on your own time has helped encouraged me to go out and follow my own path,” friend Megan Harney wrote on Facebook. “You will never be forgotten since you touched so many.”
