A primary school teacher has suffered a really tragic misfortune after she mustered enough nerve to take some cocaine.
Jeanette Allen, a primary school teaching assistant has died of a heart attack aged just 39 after she snorted cocaine during a night out.
According to The Sun UK, Jeanette Allen had been celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday, but was found dead on her sofa the following morning.
Tests showed the cocaine she had taken with alcohol had triggered underlying heart problems.
Jeanette, from Rochdale, Gtr Manchester, had been described a “bit of a party girl” in her younger days but in recent years had behaved more responsibly.
She was a member of support staff at Shawclough Primary School where colleagues described her as ”well loved’.’
Her partner Robert Christian told an inquest in Heywood, Jeanette was ‘‘the woman of his dreams’’ and said they had been together for 19 years.
He said: “She would do anything for me, we did everything together. Her death has left me with a big hole.
“I wasn’t aware that she was taking cocaine, years ago she was a bit of a party girl out a lot of the time but it got less over the years.
“We has gone out together at about 6pm for a mates 40th and we were drinking all night.
“The last time I saw and spoke to her was around 3am, she wanted to go to town and I didn’t so I left town on my own and headed home.
“I woke up at about 12.50pm on the Sunday and I found her on the couch. I called the ambulance and the paramedics came but I knew that she was gone. I miss her like crazy. She had so much that she was going to do.”
Dr Sami Titi, told the inquest that Ms Allen had 90% narrowing of her arteries in parts of the body, which put a strain on her heart.
He said: “She had an acute heart attack. As she had been drinking and taking cocaine that also would have put pressure on her heart.
“The cocaine sped the process of the heart attack up.”
Ms Allen’s GP records shows that she had been seen regularly in the year before her death on May 28 this year, for low blood sugar and complications with her diabetes.
She has also been diagnosed with kidney disease, and had been prescribed with anti depression medication to combat anxiety.
Recording a narrative conclusion, coroner Lisa Hashmi said: “Unfortunately you cannot ignore the impact of the drugs in this case.
“The use of cocaine took a toll on her body. I have heard the consequences of cocaine use and alcohol mixed with a heart condition which can result in a sudden death.”
