American teen dies of caffeine overdose

19 May 2017, 08:26 | Todd Saunders

A coffee, a caffeinated drink and an energy soda proved a deadly combination for a SC teenager who died within two hours of consuming them, triggering warnings about the risks of caffeine overdose. Richland County Coroner Gary Watts told the station on Monday that caffeine caused the fatal cardiac event, as the SC teen drank a plethora of caffeinated drinks that day-including a large diet Mountain Dew, a cafe latte, and an unidentified energy drink.

Two hours before he collapsed, Cripe drank a cafe latte, a large Diet Mountain Dew and an energy drink.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts noted Tueday that such occurrences are "highly unusual".

The Mayo Clinic recommends adults take in a max of 300-400 milligrams of caffeine per day. While the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends teens don't consume any caffeine, Jill Michels, PharmD, Director of the Palmetto Poison Center, told WBTW that parents should still educate their children about the risks of caffeine intake and the harm caffeinated drinks can do.

Impeachment: Donald Trump's worst nightmare?

Too much of caffeine from energy drinks and cafe in a short time can be a lethal combination.

Cripe's father says he was a good son who would never touch alcohol or drugs, and he hopes the teen's death will save other lives by showing the dangers of excessive caffeine.

"It wasn't a vehicle crash that took his life". Parents, please talk to your kids about these energy drinks. "Our goal here today is to let people know, especially our young kids in school, that these drinks can be unsafe, and be very careful with how you use them, and how many you drink on a daily basis".

Health experts have expressed concern about the drinks' high caffeine content, which can cause arrhythmia and raise blood pressure in young people.
