Teenager dies on her 18th birthday celebrations


A teenager died after drinking a super-strength spirit with a 95% alcohol content at her 18th birthday party.

Nicole Bicknell collapsed after drinking just a few shots of Polmos Spirytus Rektyfikowany.

Her heartbroken family has now called for a complete ban on the drink's sale in Australia.

Nicole had only had a few mixed drinks during the course of the part but was allegedly offered the spirit by a friend.

She was dead a few hours later, the Courier Mail reports.

Her family must wait a few weeks for her official cause of death to be confirmed, but they believe the spirit killed her.

The Australian Medical Association called for Spirytus Rektyfikowany to be banned two years ago.
