Caffeine-induced cardiac event kills SC teen

19 May 2017, 11:37 | Terri Saunders

Too much caffeine is blamed for the death of a South Caroline teen.

Sixteen-year-old SC student Davis Allen Cripe died last month after drinking a McDonald's latte, a large Mountain Dew, and an energy drink in less than two hours. The cause of death of the Spring Hill High School teenager who had collapsed in a classroom last month and died, was a "caffeine-induced" cardiac event, the Richland County Coroner's Office said in its newly-published report.

A typical soda bottle, like Mountain Dew, has about 90 milligrams of caffeine, and the Mayo Clinic says the average cup of coffee has more than 100 milligrams.

Officials declined to name the energy drink that Davis had purchased from a McDonald's restaurant at around 12:30 p.m. on 26th of April. Cripes autopsy showed no undiagnosed heart conditions and that he was healthy with no medical conditions that could have triggered by the caffeine intake. "We lost Davis from a totally legal substance", Watts said. "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".

"You worry about their safety, their health - especially once they start driving but it wasn't a vehicle crash that took his life instead it was an energy drink", David's dad Sean Cripe said.

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

"The goal here today is not to slam Mountain Dew, it's not to slam café lattes, its not to slam energy drinks", Watts said.
