A man was unable to be resuscitated after he went into cardiac arrest following drug use.

Mohammed Sadeeq, 38, died shortly after arriving at hospital on September 16.

Mohammed, from Haslingden, was taken to Fairfield General Hospital in Bury by paramedics from North West Ambulance Service but died shortly before 7.30pm.

An inquest at Accrington Town Hall heard that John Pennington, a paramedic with the ambulance service, confirmed Mohammed was breathing upon their arrival after being contacted initially by Greater Manchester Police, who in turn contacted Lancashire Police.

Advanced life support and shots of adrenaline were given to Mohammed in an attempt to resuscitate him, but he did not survive.

Evidence read into the record by Coroner Chris Long said Mohammed had returned home at around 4pm on September 16 and went straight to his bedroom.

Around an hour later, his sister heard grunting and vomiting noises coming from his room.

When his father then went to check on him, Mohammed appeared to be having a seizure. The medical episode continued until paramedics arrived.

Police confirmed a snap bag containing a white substance was found at the scene which, after being sent off for analysis, was found to contain cocaine.

The officer in charge of the case, DCI Dave Little, said there were no suspicious circumstances or third-party involvement regarding Mohammed’s death.

A toxicology report from Dr Steph Martin at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals confirmed there was evidence of recent cocaine use, and that the blood concentration was within the range encountered in deaths.

“He was admitted having a seizure at home, having ingested cocaine.”

Mr Long gave a conclusion of drug-related death and offered his condolences to Mohammed’s family and friends.
