Glasgow Police Confirm Two Teenage Deaths at SWG3 Event Were Drug-Related

Glasgow police have officially confirmed that the tragic deaths of two teenagers at the SWG3 event over the weekend were drug-related.

The authorities have clarified that the two deaths were considered separate incidents, and there is no evidence linking the two cases.

The investigation into the deaths of these 18-year-olds, whose identities are currently undisclosed, continues. Both young individuals tragically passed away within hours of each other after attending a 12-hour event at Glasgow’s SWG3 club on Saturday, August 12.

The outdoor event commenced at 2:00 PM on Saturday in the Galvanisers Yard section of the venue complex, featuring a 10-hour headline set by Newcastle’s Ben Hemsley.

Emergency services responded to a call at Croy train station in Lanarkshire around 11:20 PM that night, where an 18-year-old was transported to University Hospital Monklands in Airdrie but, sadly, was pronounced dead shortly after.

Subsequently, the police were summoned to the SWG3 venue itself around 2:20 AM on Sunday morning during an afterparty following reports of another 18-year-old male collapsing. He was rushed to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow but, regrettably, was also pronounced dead shortly after his arrival.

The police continue their investigations into both tragic deaths, now confirming their drug-related nature. They are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

Chief Superintendent Mark Sutherland, Divisional Commander for Greater Glasgow, emphasized that although both individuals attended the same event on Saturday night, there is currently no evidence to suggest a connection between the two deaths.
