It is hard not to be shocked by the transformation taking MDMA has had on this teenager from Glasgow.
The family of a 16-year-old girl who was left in a coma after taking MDMA have released a video showing how the teenager’s life has been altered beyond recognition.
Amy Thomson’s life was dramatically changed after she collapsed at an ‘ecstasy party’ at a house in Glasgow in June.
The 16-year-old was left in a critical condition and spent weeks fighting for her life at Glasgow South hospital, as her loved ones kept a bedside vigil.
Amy only took one capsule of the ‘party drug’ at a friends back in June, but it was enough to change her life forever.
Amy is now in a wheelchair, with brain damage and slurred speech.
She and three other teenagers were taken to hospital, but Amy was critically ill and left in a coma for weeks.
She is now in rehab and visits her family at home.
