Depressed woman died from cocktail of drugs

Friday 4th December 2009

A woman who was suffering from depression died
after taking a cocktail of prescription drugs, an inquest heard.

Coroner’s Court heard that Samantha Andrews, aged 32, of Harpford Close, Breightmet,
died after taking drugs including sleeping tablets, anti-depressants and

But Assistant Deputy Coroner Peter Watson said there
was insufficient evidence to prove that Miss Andrews committed suicide and
recorded an open verdict.

The inquest heard that Miss Andrews, who had
trained as a nurse, had previously twice taken overdoses but told doctors that
these were a cry for help.

She was found unconscious in her bed by her
partner, Philip Brockbank, on March 2 and taken for treatment at the Royal
Bolton Hospital, before being transferred to a hospital in Wigan where she died
on March 5.

The cause of death was brain death due to lack of oxygen,
caused by the overdose.

Mr Watson said: “She was still a young woman who
clearly had talent but had troubles in her life.”

  1. Every now and then, I try to search the internet and read news in Yahoo, Google and even Hotmail about intelligent people, but still tries to commit suicide. It’s just too sad that there are even people who are troubled, and needs to understand the beauty of life. Another thing that keeps me troubled is the fact that these anti-depressants are being abused, just for this purpose. Perhaps the government or w/e is involved in it must be pretty aware about these situations.
