Post Mortem Taking Place On Dublin Teen Who Died At The Weekend

POST MORTEM TAKING PLACE ON DUBLIN TEEN WHO DIED AT THE WEEKEND

A post mortem examination is being carried out on the body of a teenager, who died after a night out in Dublin at the weekend.

Tests will be conducted to see if illegal drugs played a role 18 year old in Ana Hick’s death.

The Dalkey teen died at the Mater Hospital yesterday, after collapsing on Middle Abbey Street at about 3am on Saturday morning.

Cork-based emergency medicine consultant Dr Chris Luke says ‘dance drugs’ are still a major problem on the Irish social scene.

“I’ve been involved with I think with nightclub medicine for about 25 years – it began in Cream in Liverpool in the early 90s – it’s about looking after the health of clubbers” he said.

“First aid, nurses, doctors…and so forth”.

“But we’re still not stemming the tide – it’s been dozens in the last five years”.

“Dozens of youngsters in Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Ireland have died from taking dance drugs” he added.
