What's really sad is that this girl had Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, she was going to a concert with friends, had had one drink, stepped away to get some water and had an adrenal crisis (which can mimic the effects of being drunk). Confused and disoriented because of the adrenal crisis, she stumbled away, lost one shoe and was found by an apartment complex doorman, who assumed she was drunk because there was the odor of alcohol from the one drink she had. It isn't known if the paramedics that were called bothered to look beyond the assumption of drunkenness either. An adrenal crisis kills by putting the person into shock, which eventually stops the heart. So all news reports continue to say she had been drinking all night and had a heart problem, and never mention the real cause of death.
