It has been confirmed that the two 19-year old men in Plymouth that had been taken to hospital have died. The tragic deaths have been attributed to drugs. It is believed that the duo had taken the drug MDMA. The duo were part of a group that had reportedly been taking the drug, fortunately – the rest appear to be unharmed. The group attended a gig by Swedish artist Basshunter – at Pryzm Plymouth. Many of those in attendance at Pryzm were students from Plymouth University, relaxing ahead of the final week of term.
The two that passed away were from the Okehampton and Newton Abbot areas of Plymouth. After collapsing, the duo were taken to Derriford Hospital, where they were later confirmed to have died.
As mentioned earlier, the rest of their group have seemingly showed no signs of a negative reaction to the drug. Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed that an 18-year old man had been arrested in connection with the deaths, and he awaits questioning.
