Boy aged 13 in a critical condition after taking what is thought to be an ecstasy drug known as magic
Police were called at around 4.30pm on July 9 at Timperley Metrolink Station to reports that a teenage boy had become unwell.
The 13-year-old boy was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.
At this stage it is believed he had taken MDMA or ecstasy known as ‘Magic’
Inspector John Cave said: “It is very early stages and we are still working to establish exactly what drug he has taken, however the boy is very poorly and we want to urge anyone who may have also taken this drug to get checked out as soon as possible.
“It is critical that young people understand the implications of taking drugs and would urge that they think twice before doing so, people taking these drugs don’t know what they contain or the effect they will have, its not worth the risk of ending up in hospital or even loosing a life.
“If anyone is in possession of these drugs I would urge them to hand them to police, a chemist or other medical practitioner immediately, and if they have taken any themselves that they go to hospital as a precaution.”
Anyone with information about this incident should call police on 101, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
