Young Woman's Close Call After Drink Was Spiked

Quick thinking by a South East hotel security guard has saved a young woman believed to be a victim of drink spiking.
Chris McGroth, from Green Triangle Security in Mt Gambier, twice resuscitated the 23-year-old Brooklyn Park woman, who had stopped breathing after drinking at the Robe Hotel on Sunday night.
Mr McGroth, who has 28 years of paramedic experience, went to the woman's aid after her friend said she was unwell.
"The lady was outside on a park bench and she was complaining of chronic abdomen cramps. She was very cold and numb....," he said.
"I called the ambulance and put her in the recovery position and then she stopped breathing." Mr McGroth gave the woman mouth-to-mouth twice before the ambulance arrived. "I feel very pleased and I am pleased that this lady is going to see in the next year," Mr McGroth said.
He said there had been about 320 patrons in the hotel on Sunday night.
Mr McGroth said the duty manager at the Robe Hotel,Eric Howard, had also helped save the woman's life. Phil Carson, the hotel's manager, said there was no history of drink spiking in Robe.
"I am very angry that this has happened," he said.
A 20-year-old woman was also taken to the Kingston Soldiers Memorial Hospital after allegedly having her drink spiked at another Robe venue.
Naracoorte Detective Rod Hannam said the Robe incidents should be a warning.
"If you are dancing, talking or going to the toilet, you must leave your drink with a friend," he said. "This type of thing can easily happen to you."
Det Hannam said if the woman had died, the offender would be looking at a murder charge and life in prison.
At this stage, he said police had no suspects and were calling for witnesses.
