Her 16th birthday celebration turned sour as Zusakhe Tyityi met her tragic death last weekend after an alleged obvious complication from drugs.
According to Daily Dispatch, the Mdantsane girl had turned 16 last Thursday and had gone out to a popular bar to celebrate with six friends on the night of Saturday, September 27, 2014.
Despite that they were all juvenile, they obviously found their ways into the bar because they were not checking identity documents at the venue as spectators from a nearby rugby match moved into the venue for celebration.
Speaking with the newspapers, the girl’s aunt said the girl was having an energy drink and her friends bought drugs, believed to be part of jubilation. After the intake of the drugs, the celebrant started shaking and throwing out.
However, she was immediately rushed to a hospital nearby where she was confirmed dead by the medical personnel.
According to the aunt, the friends said this was the first time the girl had tried drugs. She was described as a Christian who loved going to church.
In a related development, a 21-year-old Cape Town woman recently died after becoming sick at a party.
Health24 described ecstasy as a party drug which enables the user to dance through the night. However, it can cause blurred vision, seizures, nausea and vomiting. It can be dangerous to those with heart disease and asthma.
Meanwhile, warnings by experts reveal that just like other street drugs, Ecstasy might be mixed together with other drugs like tik, cocaine or heroine.
