British clubber dies in Ibiza
Wednesday 13 July 2011
A 20-year-old British woman died in Ibiza today while on holiday on the Spanish party island.
Local police said they could not confirm reports that Jodie Nieman had taken ecstasy as they were waiting for the results of her post-mortem examination.
Ms Nieman had been clubbing at the Space nightclub in the Playa d'en Bossa resort on the island's south east coast when she fell ill.
An ambulance was called at 4.30am and she was taken to the Can Misses hospital, suffering a heart attack, a hospital spokesman said.
"Ambulance staff tried to resuscitate her and when she arrived at hospital, medics continued to try and save her but it was not possible and she died at 5am," he said.
The young woman had been staying in an apartment in the resort and was out last night with a group of female friends, who accompanied her to the hospital by car.
They had taken ecstasy, the hospital spokesman said, but he could not confirm whether the woman who died had taken the party drug as well.
A spokeswoman for the Civil Guard in Majorca said: "Police are investigating the death of a British woman from Croydon (south London). At the moment we cannot confirm the cause of death.
"Results of the post-mortem examination are expected later today or tomorrow."
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the death of a British national in Ibiza in the early hours of this morning and are providing consular assistance to the family."
If Ms Nieman's death was drug-related, it would be the first drug death of the year in Ibiza, the hospital spokesman said.
During the summer season, the hospital treats between three and five patients every day who have taken drugs, he said.
These people form up to three per cent of the hospital's emergency cases in July.
