A mum has shared shocking pictures of her 15-year-old daughter lying ‘lifeless’ in a coma as she attempts to warn children about the dangers of binge drinking.
Melissa Aho, posted the photos of her daughter Ryleigh Ackles online after the teenager was left ‘foaming at the mouth’ vomiting into her lungs and falling over as a result of downing some vodka.
Ryleigh, who weighs less than 44 kilos, nearly died after her blood alcohol level rose to 0.28 per cent.
A content level of over 0.35 has been known to cause death.
In a Facebook post, Melissa from Massachusetts, explained the shocking events of that night.
She explains how for 14 hours that she had to ‘beg and lead’ with doctors as memories of her daughter flashed before her eyes.
Amazing, Ryleigh opened her eyes and she is expected to make a full recovery.
Melissa has decided to share the photos to warn other children about the importance of teenagers looking out for each other.
