KONAWA — Authorities released a 911 recording Wednesday of a man desperately seeking help while people coughed and screamed at a party where they were sickened by a hallucinogenic designer drug.
One woman died, and seven others were hospitalized after taking the drug 2C-E, also called phenethylamine.
Ricky Prindle, one of the partygoers who did not ingest the drug, which was purchased on the Internet, called emergency services early Saturday after Anastasia “Stacy” Jewell, 22, of Ada, started having seizures.

Jewell was pronounced dead Saturday at Integris Seminole Medical Center. Her funeral is set for 10 a.m. Thursday at Grace Christian Fellowship in Ada.
