SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 14-year-old Northern California girl has died and three of her friends became ill after drinking an unknown substance mixed into their soda during a weekend sleepover.

   Sonoma County Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Brown says paramedics found the girl dead on her bedroom floor around 9 a.m. Sunday. The girl had hosted a sleepover Saturday night at her Santa Rosa house.

   Brown says the girl’s mother woke up during the night and saw the girls throwing up. They told her they were suffering from food poisoning.

   The friends later told investigators that the girl had passed around a soda that had tasted strange, but they said they didn’t know what was in it.

   Brown says he doesn’t know if the incident is alcohol-related. Toxicology reports are pending.

    Why are adults so damn stupid? Take the kids to emergency. This could have been prevented, if the adults weren’t so LAZY

      Speaking of STUPID.

    Wow, you obviously don’t have kids, you don’t just take them to the ER for throwing up. The children know more than they are saying I am sure. There is nothing to indicate this mom was lazy.

    WOW! had to share sodas…damn this recession!!

    One child throwing up is not reason to run to the ER. A few children whom are under your care and are throwing up need to be taken in or at least call the parents so they can determine what kind of care is needed for their child. NO one should be pointing the finger or judging without knowing ALL facts. What should be said is lets try to make the best decisions possible when other peoples childrens are under our care. My paryers are with the family!

    So who put the substance into the soda? Can it be one of the juvenile delinquents who want to get high?

    A lot of this stuff is being written in the UK and published in the US. Turner media is getting you folks ready for your repatriation transformation. This article is macabre, to say the least. It’s like the one about the limbless man who was thrown to his death from a roller coaster ride. Macabre. More examples: Dog gets rabies shot after being bitten by 5 year old; Man seen trying to escape from honeymoon suite after learning bride is a transvestite; Grandmother though to be dead arrives for Christmas dinner with presents ANAI. The idea is it yanks at your sensibilities throwing you into a normalcy bias stupor shutting down your ability to think clearly. It’s a play on the double bind, and it can quite literally put an entire culture in a schizoid state of mind. You didn’t know you were being engineered to be stupid by Sac 13, did ya?

    By now the truth is known the unknown substance was vodka. My heart goes out to the dead girl’s mom who was lied to by other girls sleeping over that night. Maybe if the mother was told the truth she would have ran to the emergency room. Instead she now has to make funeral plans for her teenage daughter. The teenager apparently went to bed after she drank an excessive amount of vodka which caused her death. The mother never realized until it was too late the girls simply made up the food poisoning to cover up the fact they were vomiting from the alcohol.

    The mom should have investigated, bottom line. Parenting is tough and we moms have to be the bad guy sometimes. Risking embarassing her teen in front of her friends could have saved her daughter’s life. Teenagers are excellent liars. I should know, I was one too. Very sad.
