This is the popular Dublin teenager who is critically ill in hospital after taking drugs on a night out.

Ana Hick, 18, who recently graduated from Loreto College in Dalkey, was with friends outside Dublin’s Twisted Pepper nightclub when she became ill and collapsed.

Emergency services treated Ana who had suffered a cardiac arrest and rushed her to a nearby hospital where her condition deteriorated.

The Irish Mirror reports that although medics were able to resuscitate her, Ana was believed to be on a life support last night.

Ana is suspected of taking three pills made of PMMA, a cheaper alternative to ecstasy, which are thought to be flooding the country.

Even though they still contain methamphetamine, the tablets are full of toxic chemicals which can be fatal.

The teenager had a fit and heart attack after she was suspected of taking the cheap tablets.

It has been reported that her heartbroken father was travelling back to Dublin from the United States to be with his daughter.
