Clubber in critical condition after taking drugs
2:55pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
A WOMAN who is in a stable but critical condition in hospital is believed to have swallowed a small quantity of drugs before she started to feel ill.
The 32-year-old attended the Warehouse Project in Trafford Park on Friday night where shared the drugs with a male friend. She was seen by the doctor at the venue and taken to hospital for medical treatment.
The woman is now in an induced coma in hospital and her male friend suffered no ill-effects.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of and supplying drugs. He remains in custody for police questioninng.
Since the recent death of clubber Nick Bonnie, police have been working closely with organisers at the Trafford music venue to increase security and improve on site medical facilities.
A larger number of officers now work with security staff and there is now a doctor on site in case of emergencies.
Chief Superintendent Mark Roberts said: “Following the tragic events of last weekend, officers from GMP have been working closely with the organisers at the Warehouse Project and partner agencies to look at the plans in place.
“It was due to swift intervention from medical staff at the venue that last night, a woman who was feeling unwell after taking only a small amount of drugs, was able to quickly receive urgent medical treatment at hospital.
“This once again highlights just what a lottery it is for your health if you choose to do drugs – you cannot know how your body will react to the chemicals you are ingesting, and more importantly, you simply do not know what chemicals are actually in the drugs you are taking.
“These unscrupulous dealers that sell drugs have no regard for people’s health and we need to work together to tackle this issue.
“Anyone found to be dealing drugs at The Warehouse Project, or any other venues across Manchester, can expect to be arrested and will feel the full weight of the law upon them – we simply will not tolerate it.” *
