A British teenager died in southwestern Colombia after he drank a traditional hallucinogen during a tribal ritual.

Officials said the 19-year-old's body was left by the side of the road by two frightened local men taking him to the hospital.

Police have also identified the tribe, which made the psychedelic brew, produced from various plants native to the Amazon.

It's used during a ritual led by local shaman.
