Public records obtained by KOB Eyewitness News 4 show exactly what happened to 14-year-old Hannah Bruch at a party last month at Expo New Mexico.
The records show Bruch and her friends knew she needed help that night.
The records also show Bruch had $100 worth of ecstasy with her and that she took the most of her friends.
Those friends were interviewed by New Mexico State Police in the days after the party. They said they took the drug with Bruch in the parking lot before they went inside.
A friend said after about an hour of excitement on the drug, things got serious.
The friend said Bruch appeared red and sweaty, her eyes droopy, her legs shaking. All of her friends tried to give Bruch water, but that didn't help.
Eventually, a security guard escorted Bruch, who couldn't walk on her own, to an ambulance, which took her to the University of New Mexico Hospital.
The details about the drugs confirm what Bruch's father told the Santa Fe New Mexican, that drugs and peer pressure are to blame for his daughter's death.
KOB left a message with Bruch's father but did not hear back.
