20-year-old dies in her mother's arms after she collapsed from a suspected drug overdose at a dance party
Tributes poured in for the deceased Aimee Letters, with one saying: "Such a beautiful girl with a world of potential."
A 20-year-old woman died of a suspected overdose after she "fell ill" at a party, from where she was carried home to her mother by her friends and neighbors who desperately tried to save her life.
According to reports, Aimee Letters was at a party when she had to be carried to her mother's house in Dumbarton, Scotland.
Once she was home, medics were called to the house in the Renton area of Dumbarton. However, they were unable to save her and she died of the suspected drug overdose. It is being said that her mother's partner even tried to desperately resuscitate her, despite having a broken arm.
Police in charge of the area have said that the young woman's death is being treated as unexplained and a post-mortem will be carried out in due course to establish the cause of death.
A Police Scotland spokeswomen said: “At around 10pm on December 18 police were made aware of the death of a 20-year-old woman at Tontine Park, Dumbarton. The death is being treated as unexplained and a post-mortem will be carried out in due course to establish the cause of death."
A news report claims Aimee was rushed to Paisley's Royal Alexandra Hospital after some neighbors called the paramedics at her mother's house, which was just a short walk from the party she was at.
However, young Aimee was soon declared dead and one neighbor described the scene: "Two neighbors practically carried Aimee into the house. Next thing I heard a bang at my window, it was another neighbor asking me to call an ambulance."
He added, "By that point, one was on its way, the whole time I didn't know what was going on but there was so much panic. Next thing I saw Aimee being carried out on the stretcher and I was devastated." Aimee's family member, Donna Letters, paid tribute to the "beautiful" young woman on a Crowdfunding page, which has been primarily set up to help the family.
The accompanying message from Donna said: "Such a beautiful girl with a world of potential." Connor Williams, who lived with Aimee for four years while he was in a relationship with her older sister, said Aimee was "like family". He said, "She was like part of the family we grew very close. I heard what had happened in a phone called I'm shocked, we all are. Aimee was a very friendly person and she knew just about everybody around here."
