Ben Pena | 19 May, 2017, 20:25

Cripe died from a caffeine-induced cardiac event causing a probable arrhythmia, officials said Monday.

Reports say within two hours of Davis Allen Cripe's death he had an energy drink, a large diet Mountain Dew and a cafe latte from McDonald's.

Watts says Cripe drank a Diet Mountain Dew, a McCafe Latte and an unknown energy drink before suffering the heart attack. 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.

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

Adults normally can consume the equivalent of four cups of coffee per day without any ill effects, though Pruitt says there are warning signs.

"While adults should be mindful of their caffeine consumption, it's important for parents to know the risks of children and adolescents consuming caffeine", Jill Michels of the Palmetto Poison Center said. Parents, please, talk to your kids about the dangers of these energy drinks.

Dr Marian O'Reilly, chief nutrition specialist at, said students need to educate themselves on the caffeine content of popular energy drinks before consuming them.

Holding back tears, Mr. Cripe said, "It wasn't a auto crash that took his life". Excessive caffeine intake has been tied to increased risk of elevated blood pressure in teenagers which may further trigger cardiac events like arrhythmia - abnormal heart rhythm where the heart is not able to pump enough blood to the body.
