It is important to be aware that alcohol can affect young bodies very quickly. This may affect someone like a friend who becomes unconscious after drinking.
If this happens…

Stay calm – never leave someone who is drunk
Call out for help
Check they are awake. Call loudly and gently shake their shoulders
Keep them warm
Place your friend in the recovery position

Now phone for the ambulance

Dial 999 giving full details of where you are
When help arrives tell them everything
Stay with your friend and don’t worry about getting “caught” – you could save a life
Never leave someone who is too drunk, especially if they appear sleepy
