A 31-year-old woman died as a result of drinking excess alcohol on a night out with a friend, an inquest has heard.
The inquest held at the IP-City Centre in Ipswich was told that Kimberly Thayer, who had a history of alcohol problems, collapsed in the kitchen of her flat in Schreiber Road, Ipswich, after returning from a night out on October 3 last year.
Ms Thayer’s friend called 999 and desperately tried to revive her. When paramedics arrived, they reported finding CPR in progress by the friend, before they provided advanced life support to Ms Thayer for more than 30 minutes, but were unable to revive her.
A post-mortem examination revealed that she had died as a result of ethanol toxicity, having found 202milligrammes of ethanol in 100millilitres of blood, and 276mg of ethanol in 100ml of urine.
A report from the post-mortem revealed that there had also been some damage to the lining of the liver, which in itself can cause death, but the inquest heard that in the case of Ms Thayer it was not believed to have been that extensive.
