Woman who died after mass drug overdose on Gold Coast named



A 40-year-old woman has died and two other women have been rushed to hospital after a mass drug overdose on the Gold Coast involving seven people.

Paramedics were called to an apartment in Surfers Paradise about 11pm on Friday after multiple overdoses, including one woman who was reported to be unconscious and not breathing.

Seven females were under the influence of drugs when paramedics arrived.

The 40-year-old woman who was in cardiac arrest at the time died at the scene. Police confirmed the identity of the woman as Danielle Whittaker, who was celebrating her 40th birthday with six close friends.

Two of the women, both also aged 43, were taken to Gold Coast University Hospital in a critical condition. One continued to fight for life in the intensive care unit on Saturday morning, while the other was now stable.

The four remaining females were assessed at the scene but refused transportation.

Mitchell Ware, of the Queensland Ambulance Service, passed on his condolences to the woman’s family.

“Unfortunately, despite specialists’ attempts on the scene, which included our high acuity response unit, that patient was unable to be revived and was declared deceased,” the Gold Coast senior operations supervisor said.
