We love viral marketing around these parts because when it’s done well, it can be pretty stellar. A new public service announcement came across our desks a little while ago urging us NOT to do a new designer drug called Mech. Read on for the reasons why you should listen.
Head on over to the viral site Don’t Do Mech. In the interim you can watch the video below and dig on this startling account of one Australian user’s run in with this deadly substance.
We received more information on the reported mech case in Melbourne. On May 30th at 3:47am, a male, mid 20′s arrived into the Emergency ward delirious and complaining of severe stomach pains. When medical staff tried to treat him, he went into a fit of rage destroying expensive medical equipment. While trying to subdue him, four staff were seriously injured. Police on duty at Royal Melbourne Hospital were called to the scene. Bath salts and a speed overdose were suspected, but autopsy has confirmed Mech was present in his system. A jagged metallic structure was excised from his abdomen, the size of a softball. Doctors are still trying to determine what the metallic structure is made of.
Witnesses say the man seemed “possessed” and was speaking incoherently. The scene was described as “gruesome”. The victims body was said to be covered in open lesions. All four medical staff remain in stable but serious condition.
The victims family was notified early Friday morning. They wish their son remain anonymous.
This violent incident ended in tragedy, not unlike previous reports on our soil.
Look for more on this one soon and remember, kids…
