Coroner: Caffeine Overdose Kills South Carolina Teen

Preston Stone | 16 May, 2017, 06:30

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

Davis Allen Cripe, 16, died on April 26 at Palmetto Health Parkridge Hospital after collapsing in a classroom at Spring Hill High School.

Watts said the final cause of death was due to a caffeine-induced cardiac event causing a probable arrhythmia. Watts said the teen was healthy and had no family history that the caffeine could have exacerbated.

'I stand before you as a brokenhearted father and hope that something good can come from this. "Parents, please talk to your kids about these energy drinks". "And teenagers and students- please stop buying them". Richland County coroner Gary Watts spoke at a news conference regarding the teens death noting that drinks that contain excessive caffeine can be risky.

Cripe's father, Sean Cripe, attended the news briefing. "It's not something that just because you drink one drink or three drinks is necessarily going to have this effect".

The daily recommended limit for a healthy adult is 400mg of caffeine a day.

According to the FDA, caffeine in doses up to 400 milligrams (about five cups of coffee) is generally safe.

A study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association last month found energy drink consumers could be at higher risk of abnormal heart beats and risky changes in blood pressure.

"The goal here today is not to slam Mountain Dew, not to slam cafe lattes or energy drinks".

Excessive caffeine led to the death of a SC teenager last month, a state coroner reported on Monday. The objective here today is not to slam Mountain Dew, not to slam cafe lattes, or energy drinks. But Davis had consumed all three drinks during a two-hour time frame. After finishing the last can, he "became unconscious and was pronounced dead a short time later".
