Excessive caffeine led to death of teen, coroner says

Excessive caffeine led to death of teen, coroner says

NBC News reports that the death of a 16-year-old student last month in SC has officially been deemed a caffeine overdose.

While the cause of death was originally unknown, coroner Gary Watts has officially ruled the teen died from a caffeine-induced cardiac event.

"A cup of coffee, a can of soda isn't going to cause this thing", said Dr. Amy Durso, deputy chief medical examiner for Richland County.

A SC high school student died after ingesting a large amount of caffeine, the Richland County Coroner told WOLO.

It was the result of the teen ingesting the caffeine from a large Diet Mountain Dew, a cafe latte from McDonald's and an energy drink over the course of about two hours, Watts said.

At a press conference Monday, Cripe's father said he hopes parents will talk to their kids about consuming energy drinks.

"Davis, like so many other kids and so many other people out there today, was doing something (he) thought was totally harmless, and that was ingesting lots of caffeine", Watts said.

Excessive caffeine led to the death of a SC teenager last month, a state coroner reported on Monday.

An initial autopsy done on the boy did could not reveal the cause of death.

The third incident cited by the website was about a Japanese man who died after mixing energy drinks with caffeine pills. "And that's what happened in this case". Healthline reports that the recommended daily caffeine limit should not exceed 400 mg for a healthy adult. "I'm telling my friends and family don't drink them". A large McDonald's latte reportedly contains approximately 178 mg of caffeine and energy drinks range from 72 to 111 mg of caffeine per serving.

Father: "It wasn't a vehicle crash that took his life".

However, the site goes on to state people with pre-existing conditions are more susceptible to potential complications from too much caffeine, and references three incidents of "death by energy drink".
