Hanoi police said Sunday they are investigating the case of a teenage girl who allegedly died after drinking ecstasy tablets with beer at her friend's birthday party.
Ha Thi Dung, 19, of Chuong My District was unconscious when she was admitted to the hospital early Saturday morning. She died shortly afterwards.
An autopsy revealed she had used the drug MDMA, popularly known as ecstasy, which led to her death.

Those who attended the party allegedly drank ecstasy tablets with beer, police said.
After Dung fainted, her friends rushed her to hospital but it was too late, according to police.
