The mother of a Perth teen who died after taking synthetic drug N Bomb says she feels like her heart has been “ripped out”.
Christie Scott’s son Corey De Bie was found dead in an Aveley park last week after taking the pill, believed to be N Bomb.
“The pain is like someone is ripping your heart, that’s how it feels,” Ms Scott said.
"I wouldn't wish this sort of pain on anybody."
Appealing to others faced with a drug choice, Ms Scott pleaded for parents and teens to be aware of drug dangers.
"There has to be a reason for this," she said.
"This has to save other people's lives, because if it doesn't save other people's lives, then it wasn't worth it.
“Don't take those drugs … (Corey) would have wanted you to live."
Corey had been at a social get-together at a property close to where his body was found.
“His friends said he was very intoxicated when he was offered it, so he may not have even been aware,” Ms Scott said.
The N Bomb drug, which sells for between $10 to $15, is even cheaper than alcohol, which is why Ms Scott says everyone should be aware of the risks first.
“It’s just hell .. no mother should have to bury her child,” Corey’s uncle Shannon said, fighting back tears.
Corey’s cause of death is still unknown, with toxicology results expected to take nine months.
