Unhappy Teen dies from too much caffeine, coroner says

Teen dies from too much caffeine, coroner says

Do not overdo caffeine.. especially those energy drinks!!

Quote:
Too much caffeine caused the death of a 16-year-old high school student from South Carolina who collapsed during class last month, according to the county coroner.

Davis Allen Cripe died from a caffeine-induced cardiac event causing a probable arrhythmia, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts announced in a news conference Monday. During an arrhythmia, or abnormal heart rhythm, the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to the body, and lack of blood flow affects the brain, heart and other organs.

The teen consumed three caffeine-laced drinks -- a cafe latte, large Diet Mountain Dew and an energy drink -- in a two-hour period before collapsing in his classroom at Spring Hill High School on April 26, Watts said.
Among those at the news conference Monday was the teen's father, Sean Cripe.

"Like all parents, we worry about our kids as they grow up. We worry about their safety, their health, especially once they start driving. But it wasn't a car crash that took his life. Instead, it was an energy drink," Sean Cripe said of his son's death.

Watts said Davis had purchased the latte at McDonald's around 12:30 p.m. After that he consumed the Diet Mountain Dew and the energy drink.

Davis collapsed at the school in Chapin, near Columbia, just before 2:30 p.m. and according to Watts, was pronounced dead at 3:40 p.m.

Davis' autopsy showed no undiagnosed heart conditions and that Davis was healthy and had no conditions that could have triggered by the caffeine intake. Also, no other drugs or alcohol were found in the teen's system, according to Watts.

Re: Teen dies from too much caffeine, coroner says

RIP for the teen, but caffeine connection is humbug. I used to have a coffee every hour when I was 13 and am still out here.

Re: Teen dies from too much caffeine, coroner says

May be caffeine in coffee is different than these energy drinks which have insane amounts of sugar as well.

Recently some energy drink company set up a table outside gas station and were giving out free drinks.. I said no thank you.. they guy couldn't believe I've not had any ever, goes what do you do for energy .. eat regular fresh food was my reply.

Agree.

Some these "Energy" drinks have 3 to 4 times amount of caffeine than a coffee.
