Police in the Chinese city of Mongkok, a part of Kowloon, Hong Kong, have raided discos, made arrests and siezed drugs following the death of 13-year-old Chek Wai-yin. The girl allegedly took a mixture of Ecstasy and ketamine before she collapsed and died on Wednesday.
The South China Morning Post reports:
Wai-yin went to a disco in Mongkok Road with a 20-year-old female friend shortly before 1am, said police.
Before dawn, she complained of dizziness and left the disco with her friend, taking a rest outside a public toilet in Mongkok Road.
“The pair then walked to Canton Road, Mongkok, where they took a rest again. The girl subsequently collapsed there and her friend called police at 6.15am,” a police spokesman said.
The girl was declared dead before arrival at Kwong Wah Hospital.
“Initial investigations showed that she did indeed take some recreational drug at the disco,” a police source said. The source added it appeared to be a mixture of ketamine and Ecstasy but it was not known how much of the drugs the girl had taken. …
“I hope this tragic incident can send a strong message to young people that drugs not only harm their health but can kill them,” said the head of the Customs Drug Investigation Bureau, Ben Leung Lun-cheung.
One hopes ….
