Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse, who was
found dead in her London flat at the end of July, had a seizure
related to her alcohol detoxification programme, her father, Mitch,
was reported as saying Monday.
According to the Sun newspaper, Winehouse told a US talk show that traces of the prescription drug Librium, used to fight anxiety and withdrawal symptoms, were found in her body.
She had suffered a seizure and "there was nobody there to rescue her," Winehouse told the Anderson Cooper's show.
A toxicology report published last month said that "no illegal substances" were found in her body.
Winehouse, who had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, was found dead on July 23. An inquest into the case is set for October.
