A mother has revealed the terrifying moment her teenage daughter was left experiencing seizures after her drink was spiked during a night out with friends.
Neve Taylor, 19, had been out with friends celebrating the easing of lockdown restrictions in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, last week when the night spiralled out of control and she was rushed to hospital.
The student midwife, from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, who believes an unidentified substance was slipped into her drink, said she had only been out for a few hours when she collapsed at around 1.30am.
Ms Taylor’s mother Sarah Scott, 50, who found the teenager semi-conscious and confused at the scene, described how her daughter became ‘floppy and unresponsive’ as she was rushed to the hospital.
The teenager, who was left experiencing seizures after her drink, said she began to feel sick around ten minutes after her first drink
Ms Scott said when she arrived to the scene she found her daughter laying on the pavement covered in mud

Ms Taylor’s mother Sarah Scott (left with daughter), 50, described how her daughter became ‘floppy and unresponsive’ as she arrived to the hospital
She said: ‘When we got to the hospital she just went floppy and unresponsive and I was full time panicking.
‘She was convulsing and it was heartbreaking.
‘Her teeth were chattering and when she was unconscious her face was screwing up in pain. It was pitiful to watch.
‘The doctors said she was reacting to what was in her body.
‘She was put in the recovery position and monitored for the night and we left at around 11am.
‘They said it’s difficult to tell what is in someone’s system unless it’s in copious amounts.
‘At the time, I was in mum mode and just telling her she was going to be ok but I think looking back, we realise how close we came to losing her.’
Ms Scott added: ‘I got a call from her friends at 1.45am saying that Neve was really unwell and asking for an ambulance so I told them to get her one then I got in my car and went to the club.
‘I was there before the ambulance and I knew she’d been spiked as soon as I saw her because of the size of her pupils.
‘I’ve seen Neve occasionally when she’s had too much to drink and being sick but I’ve never seen her like this.
‘She was laying on the pavement covered in mud, I don’t know how she got that dirty.
‘She was screaming in pain. Neve is really mature but she was like a little girl and she was asking me why someone would do that to her.’

Ms Taylor said she began to feel sick around ten minutes after her first drink and soon collapsed.
She said: ‘It was about ten minutes after my last drink I started to feel sick so my friends took me outside for some fresh air and I was fine. I walked out on my own but then when I was outside, I started vomiting and collapsed.
‘I can’t remember much after that.’
Ms Taylor and her mother have now posted images of the teenager after her drink was spiked as a stark warning to party-goers and nightclubs.
The teenager’s mother said: ‘I filmed her because I wanted her to see what had happened.
‘We watched the videos together afterwards and we both just cried then we shared them to Facebook to try and raise some awareness.

‘It’s not a finger pointing exercise, we just don’t want this to happen to anyone else because this kind of thing will be on the increase with more people going out.
‘The ramifications could last a lifetime if not fatal.
‘I’ve been looking into it and I think the intentions of spiking are to disable someone to abduct or attack them. It’s scary.’
The pair are speaking out to encourage clubs to increase security measures as lockdown restrictions ease to prevent this from happening to anyone else.
Ms Scott said: ‘The physical effects have disappeared, but the psychological effects are still there.
‘She’s surprised us all by going straight back to university but the whole experience has put her off going out.
‘I just hope this might provoke clubs into reviewing their security, searching people as they go in and increasing their security measures on the floor.
‘Since I posted the videos, people have been getting in touch with similar experiences.
‘If we could get clubs to increase their security measures that would be a blessing.’
