A British teenager has died in a remote rainforest area of Colombia after reportedly taking drugs during a tribal ritual.
Henry Miller, 19, was with other tourists when he took Yage, which brings on vivid hallucinations and supposedly spiritual experiences, in the remote town of Mocoa in the Putumayo region, The Daily Mail reports.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are aware of the death of a British national on 23 April in Colombia. We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time.”
