A MOTHER-of-one who was feared dead after taking contaminated cannabis has come out of a coma.

Samantha Morgan (24) was one of two women left fighting for their lives after consuming contaminated cannabis.

Her family had lost hope of her surviving on Thursday night and had even begun planning the funeral arrangements.

However yesterday afternoon Ms Morgan, the mother of a seven-month-old boy, JJ, began to show signs of life.

Her mum Fidelma described the news as a miracle.

"Everyone's been praying and praying and it is just amazing, simply incredible that she is back with us," she said.

 

DEALER

Fidelma, who is a nurse in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, said she is looking forward to helping her daughter on her road to recovery.

"She hasn't spoken yet but doctors believe she will be fine and won't be brain-damaged."

Gardai are continuing to hunt the dealer who is suspected of providing the contaminated substance to Ms Morgan and fellow Co Louth woman, Alannah Molloy.

Ms Molloy (25) is also expected to survive. The mother of one, who lives in Kilsaran, remains in a critical condition but doctors hope to take her off the ventilation machine.
