Mitch Winehouse: 'Amy died of a seizure and there was no one there to rescue her'
Mitch Winehouse has revealed that "what happened to Amy wasn't anything to do with drugs".
Speaking exclusively on the launch of Anderson Cooper's brand new talk show, 'Anderson', which premiered last night (September 12) Mitch opened about the cause of his daughter's death and explained that he is certain she died from a detox-induced seizure.
"No, the toxicology report... so that everybody knows, I've been banging on about the fact that she hasn't taken drugs in three years."
"She had a series of seizures brought on by this binge drinking and then stopping to drink... I think it's what the doctor said, I think she had a seizure and this was the time when there was no one there to rescue her."
He also added, as previously reported by Pressparty, that the only drug to be found in Amy's system was Librium, "which is a normal drug, which is given to people who are detoxing and it kind of decreases the chances of having seizures":
"Her problem was alcohol, the last few years of her life. You might argue, 'What's the difference?' The difference is that what happened to Amy wasn't anything to do with drugs. It might be that drugs took its toll in the early years, but there were no drugs in her system... She was prescribed Librium, which is a normal drug, which is given to people who are detoxing and it kind of decreases the chances of having seizures. She was continuing to take one of those pill everyday."
