    A 'fun-loving' Christmas party-goer has died after her drink was spiked at a house party.
    Gemma Thomas was seen laughing and joking when she collapsed at the festive do at a friend's home.
    The 26-year-old was taken to hospital but died after four days in a coma, with her devastated family by her bedside.

      I don't get why people would spike a drink in the first place, especially in a house party situation. What do you gain from it, other than a loss of your own drugs?

      Well, it's kinda sad.

      But from the stories I hear from a few family friends drinks getting 'spiked' happens as often as people 'fall' onto vegetables.

      Miss Thomas, who enjoyed visiting nightclubs, wrote on her profile on social networking site Facebook: 'Love going out socialising with all my mates and getting very very drunk until I fall over ha ha xxx.'
      She also had a 43-year old bf, lol? Probably just OD'ed herself, who knows.

      Why the hell do people just copy and paste news stories onto this forum without contributing anything? What's the point? I can get news myself, thanks.

      This is just awful. Awful at any time of year, but particularly just before Christmas. Her family will have planned Christmas and everything :-(
