    A Dunedin student tried to scratch out his eyeballs at a student party - after taking what he thought was ecstasy

    A Dunedin student tried to scratch out his eyeballs at a student party - after taking what he thought was ecstasy


    Police were called to assist ambulance officers at a party on Castle St at about 11 last night.

    Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen told the Otago Daily Times a 19-year-old believed he'd taken MDMA - but tests show it was mostly bath salts.

    Dinnissen says there's a huge risk around untested drugs and people need to be cautious.
