Two people are in critical condition following Reminisce Festival in England with suspected overdoses — which could be linked to “bad” MDMA.
According to a report, a 19-year-old woman and 22-year old man were believed to have taken the drug. A number of others were also rushed in for medical treatment following possible intake. The hospitalizations came after a “bad” batch of MDMA pills circulated the event and investigators have reason to believe the substance could be the cause.
Reminisce Festival previously warned about “bad” batch of “blue diamond pills,” pictured below. The post urged anyone who felt concerned about themselves or a friend to approach festival workers or onsite medical staff.
Police also urged attendees to avoid taking any pills distributed during Reminisce.
Detective Inspector Paul Grounds said, “…we are doing everything possible to identify exactly what substance or substances have resulted in these severe reactions, working alongside the health service.”
“We initially believe that ecstasy tablets were taken by some of those in hospital but this is all subject to further enquiries. I would urge anyone else who has had an adverse reaction to any substance make themselves known to medical services as soon as possible.”
Everyone stay safe out there.
