Woman Electrocuted After Taking Drugs At Rave & Falling Onto Live Rail Track

A woman who fell onto a live rail track and was electrocuted had taken a cocktail of drugs at an all-night rave before her death, an inquest has heard.

Hayley Prett, 40,  was seen near the tracks the morning she wandered off from the annual End of Summer Party bash by a beach in Folkstone, Kent on September 29.

Miss Prett, who worked as a carer, had been at the rave with around 30 other people before she wandered off.

She had partied with pals at the rave and had taken cocaine, ecstasy, ketamine and amphetamines during the night, the inquest at Maidstone Coroner's Court heard last week.



Detective Constable Mark Connor, of the British Transport Police, told the inquest how pals found Miss Prett lying in a bush in the early hours of Sunday morning following the rave, but she waved them away.

He told the court how she was then seen at 8.30am on September 30 near the rail tracks "bending down and waving her arms around".

The witness told the inquest how they thought Miss Prett - who was naked after stripping off all her clothes - was performing a "ritual" and left her alone.

Her body was found on the train tracks between Folkestone and Dover at 10am by a group of joggers.

The inquest heard how Miss Prett, of Sandgate, Kent, was drinking gin and lemonade - as well as having taking a cocktail of drugs - at the rave and that other revellers said she seemed 'happy'.

Coroner Katrina Hepburn heard how a toxicity report showed that Miss Prett had 4.2mg of ecstasy in her system, which is considered to be 'excessive', as well as cocaine, ketamine and amphetamines.

The court heard how Miss Prett was a recreational drug user.
Miss Prett's family stressed her drug-taking was recreational and by no means habitual, according to Kent Live.

DC Connor told the inquest: "It (The End of Summer Party) normally attracts people from the Folkestone and Dover areas. She had been to that party before."

A pathology report revealed that an examination of Miss Prett's body showed she had burn lines to her back, elbow and buttocks, caused by electrocution.

The coroner told the inquest last week: "She has died as a result of electrocution and burns but this has to be looked at in the context of significant drug intoxication.

“The MDMA was at 4.2mg/litre which is described as being excessive and indeed there’s evidence that levels of concentration greater than 3mg/litre are typically reported with fatality.

“I take the view that this particular evening, Miss Prett had a number of drugs in her system at the time also ketamine, evidence of previous cocaine use and also amphetamines in her system.

“The drugs together would have had a profound effect on her.”

She added: "It is unclear on the evidence, what caused her to get down onto the tracks.
“Whether she fell, or collapsed, had a medical episode or if she intended to lie down I simply cannot reach that conclusion.

“I have no evidence she was intending to take her own life.


“I find this is a drugs-related death."

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
