A mum whose daughter wound up in a coma after taking ecstasy has taken to Facebook to warn of the dangers of the drug.
Kerry Robinson, from Manchester, took to the social media site to share harrowing photos of her seriously ill daughter, Leah.
The 16-year-old was reportedly at a party over Christmas when she took the drug. Her body had a serious reaction to the pill, and she ended up in an induced coma, in hospital.
A devastated Kerry posted a photo of Leah from her hospital bed, explaining: “My daughter had a brain scan and [was] put in a coma because she took ecstasy. She is in a bad way.”
“Please, let there be a God…This is what ecstasy does – please don’t take them,” she urged.
Thankfully, a later update revealed that Leah was ‘going to be OK’, but Kerry expressed fears that other teens in their locality may be similarly affected by the drugs.
Police are now said to be investigating the incident.
