MEDICS battled in vain for around an hour in a desperate bid to save the life of a young mother-of-two, it emerged today.
The tragedy unfolded when 24-year-old Jade Bagley collapsed with a heart attack on Tuesday night at the house in Hogarth Road.
Medics battled in vain for around an hour as they tried to save her life.
Three people were arrested and later bailed. A 38-year-old woman and two men, aged 21 and 33, were questioned by detectives throughout yesterday after they were detained on suspicion of administering a noxious substance.
An emergency call was made to the ambulance service shortly after 10.50pm.
A paramedic in a rapid response vehicle arrived at the house within six minutes, to be followed four minutes later by an ambulance crew.
A Suffolk Accident Rescue Service (SARS) doctor was also despatched to help, arriving at 11.25pm.
Police were alerted to the incident by the ambulance service shortly before 11.35pm.
The paramedics and doctor tried to save Miss Bagley’s life, but she was pronounced dead at around midnight.
Richard Dunne, a spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said: “A woman in her 20s was reported unconscious, but breathing.
“Crews arrived at the scene and confirmed she was in cardiac arrest. They made every effort to save the woman’s life. They did everything they possibly could.”
Police have yet to formally name the woman. However, she has been named locally as Miss Bagley.
The cause of death has yet to be determined, although police are looking into the possibility an illegal substance may have played a part.
Throughout yesterday two properties in Hogarth Road were cordoned off by police tape. One of the houses was where Miss Bagley lived.
Residents, all of who declined to be named, spoke of their shock as police began conducting house-to-house enquiries.
One neighbour said: “I just saw the police cars this morning. That was about 8.20am.
“I used to live over the road and I have never seen anything like this before.”
Another said: “It’s just heartbreaking.”
Richard Jones, a spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary, said: “Police received a call just after 11.30pm on Tuesday from the ambulance service reporting that they were at a property in Hogarth Road, Ipswich, tending to a woman who was in cardiac arrest.
“The woman, who was in her 20s, was sadly pronounced deceased on scene.
“A 33-year-old man, a 21-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman, who are all from Ipswich, were arrested on suspicion of administering a noxious substance.”
The trio were bailed last night, pending further enquiries. They are due to return to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre on May 8.
Police are appealing for anyone with information in relation the tragedy to telephone Ipswich CID on 101.
