Carson Price Death & Cause
Carson Price, of Hengoed, was found “in and out of consciousness, pale and shaking” in Ystrad Mynach Park, Caerphilly, in April last year.
The teenager was taken to hospital but his condition deteriorated rapidly and he died.
An inquest into his death concluded it was drug-related.
A coroner ruled he died as a result of taking “excessive” amounts of ecstasy – also known as MDMA.
Coroner’s officer Geoffrey Ronayne said: “The emergency services responded to a call of a male youth who had passed out in a park in Ystrad Mynach.
“On their arrival he was in and out of consciousness, pale and shaking.
“He was immediately conveyed by ambulance to the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
“His condition rapidly deteriorated and despite medical intervention and life-saving procedures, he passed away later that evening.”
Coroner Sarah Le Fevre said: “Carson Price was a 13-year-old boy, who on 12th April 2019 took an excessive amount of MDMA.
“He reacted violently to this drug and despite the efforts of medical staff died from the effects on 12th April 2019 at the University Hospital Wales.”
Carson Price Mother Tatum Price Statement
Carson’s mother Tatum Price, 39, appealed for other youngsters to reject the drugs – which are being sold for as little as £2-a-pill.
In a statement his mother and father Brian told how “our lives changed forever when our little boy was taken away from us.”
The pair said: “Thinking of another family going through what we have is unbearable.
“We urge people to talk about the devastating consequences that drugs can have and how they destroy lives.
”Carson was bright and caring, kind and loving. He was a cheeky little boy.”
One person was arrested but the police said "it was not directly related to Carson's death."
