    A 15-YEAR-OLD Sydney girl has died after drinking a cocktail of alcohol and energy drinks concocted from an online recipe.

    A TEENAGE girl who sourced an alcoholic recipe online has died after consuming a cocktail of alcohol and energy drinks.

    The 15-year-old was found unconscious at a home at Kenthurst, in Sydney?s northwest, on Friday, June 8.

    Emergency services were called to the home about 9.25pm and transported the girl to The Children?s Hospital at Westmead where she died on Monday. An investigation is underway into the death and a post mortem examination is expected to take place this week.

    NSW Police officers have seized items from the scene including a bottle of alcohol and energy drinks.

    The Hills Police Area Commander, Superintendent Rob Critchlow, today warned about the risks of underage drinking, and sourcing information online relating to alcohol consumption.

    ?This investigation is in its infancy but early inquiries indicate this girl sourced an alcoholic drink recipe from an online site, then put that information to the test,? Supt Critchlow said.

    ?The consequences have been tragic.

    ?We cannot emphasise more strongly the risk of underage and ? more importantly ?? uninformed alcohol consumption.

    ?We have a family devastated by the death of their beloved daughter; they have a lot of questions.?

    Supt Critchlow said police ?will endeavour to find answers?.

    ?But our message has to be: do not risk your health experimenting with high-risk information sourced online,? he said.

    Yeah if anything this shows why you should supervise your kids alcohol consumption. In places with strict age limits on alcohol kids are left to learn the ropes on there own and tragedy is bound to occur occasionally
