    A 20-year-old British woman has died while on holiday in Ibiza.
    Local police could not confirm reports that Jodie Nieman had taken ecstasy as they were waiting for the results of her post-mortem examination.

    Ms Nieman had been clubbing at the Space nightclub in the Playa d'en Bossa resort on the island's south-east coast when she fell ill.

    An ambulance was called at 4.30am on Wednesday and she was taken to the Can Misses hospital, suffering a heart attack, a hospital spokesman said.

    "Ambulance staff tried to resuscitate her, and when she arrived at hospital medics continued to try to save her but it was not possible and she died at 5am," he said.

    The young woman had been staying in an apartment in the resort and was out at the club with a group of female friends, who accompanied her to the hospital by car.

    The friends had taken ecstasy, the hospital spokesman said, but he could not confirm whether Ms Nieman had taken the drug as well.

    A spokeswoman for the Civil Guard in Mallorca said: "Police are investigating the death of a British woman from Croydon (south London). At the moment we cannot confirm the cause of death."

    A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the death of a British national in Ibiza in the early hours of this morning and are providing consular assistance to the family."

    If Ms Nieman's death was drug-related, it would be the first drug death of the year in Ibiza, the hospital spokesman said.

    During the summer season, the hospital treats between three and five patients every day who have taken drugs, he said.

    These people form up to 3% of the hospital's emergency cases in July.

    The death of a beauty therapist in Ibiza was "almost certainly" caused by drugs, Spanish police have said.

    Jodie Nieman, 20, from Kenley, was on holiday with friends when she suffered a heart attack in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

    Miss Nieman had been on a night out at the Space club in the Playa d'en Bossa resort when she fell ill.

    Friends are said to have told police she had taken ecstasy the night before she died.

    A Guardia Civil spokesman said officers were "almost 100 percent certain" she fell ill because of drugs.

    Tributes from friends and family have been paid to Miss Nieman who worked at Nails To Be Seen in Warlingham.

    Her brother Danny Jackson, wrote on a social network site: "My Sister Jodie Nieman Just Died In Ibiza I Now Hate My Life." A message from James Pentland said: "Our whole family is in bits."

    Results from a post-mortem examination are expected to be released later today.

    Ecstasy pills confirmed to have caused the death of Jodie Nieman

    Toxicology studies carried out on the body of Jodie Nieman, the 20 year old British tourist who died last summer in Can Misses, after being taken out of a discotheque in Platja d’en Bossa in a serious condition, have shown that she had taken ecstasy, and perished as a result of a pulmonary edema, which could well have been caused by the taking of MDMA and MDA.

    The report from the National Toxicology Institute makes it clear that despite the presence of these substances typical of taking ecstasy, there is nothing else of note, not even alcohol , which could have led to her medical crisis.

    It now falls to Judge José Espinosa in Instruction Court 2 in Elvissa to rule on the circumstances of her death on July 23 last year.

    The judicial investigation has ruled out the fear, as expressed over the summer, of the ecstasy being adulterated with some fatal component. That is now known not to be the case.

    The pills she took were pink and stamped with a five pointed star. 1500 of the same pills have since been impounded by EDOA agents in Eivissa.

    Very sad story. According to the last article, there were only MDMA/MDA in the pills, and it doesn't seem to be a result of water intoxication or dehydration.

    Obviously, I think a pre-existing condition is the biggest suspect here. This a common link with stimulant drugs, and if I wonder about the examination of the heart and cardio-vascular system, and what it showed. I would be very surprised if something either there, or in the history of the person, did not make itself apparent eventually.

    Very sad, indeed.
