Teens found slumped over at drug party where man died
TEENS as young as 15 were found slumped unconscious at a drug-fueled party on the Gold Coast where a young man plunged four floors to his death.
Emergency services responders found drug paraphernalia and a large quantity of diazepam, or Valium, in a hotel room along with six teens in various states of consciousness, in the early hours of Saturday morning just after the body of a 19-year-old Brisbane man was found on the Surfers Paradise street below.
The deceased teenager from Brisbane was found dead on View Ave around 3.19am.
Four teens from the room were taken to Robina Hospital in a stable condition.
Police are still trying to piece together the circumstances surrounding the death of the young man.
Police say a crime scene has been set up.
"Investigations are underway to determine the cause and what may have taken place in the lead-up," police said in a statement.
A media conference has been scheduled for later today.
