A 16-year-old SC boy who collapsed in a classroom at school and died last month had so much caffeine in two hours that it killed him, a medical examiner said Monday.
Cripe drank a large Mountain Dew, a McDonald's latte and an energy drink two hours before he began experiencing arrhythmia, Watts said.
The Richland County Coroner said a Spring Hill High School student died as a result of ingesting large amounts of caffeine.
Sean Cripe, Davis' father, told WLTX-TV his son did not drink alcohol or use drugs, and warned other parents about allowing their children to drink high-caffeinated energy drinks. "And teenagers and students- please stop buying them".

While McDonald's doesn't now report the amount of caffeine in their coffee, Caffeine Informer estimated a large, 21-24-ounce McDonald's latte contains 178 milligrams of caffeine. Watts declined to name the energy drink. Rather, the coroner says the teens death was entirely attributed to the excessive consumption of caffeine which lead to heart arrhythmia and ultimately death.
"I stand before you as a brokenhearted father and hope that something good can come from this", Cripe said.
"You know, a cup of coffee, a can of soda, isn't going to cause this sort of thing", said Amy Durso, MD, deputy chief pathologist for Richland County.
"We lost Davis from a totally legal substance", Watts said.
Watts says that the teen had no signs of a preexisting, undiagnosed heart issue that would have contributed to his death. Based on Cripe's weight, Watts says the amount of caffeine consumed was above what is considered a "safe limit".
He also urged people to avoid highly caffeinated drinks. But Davis had consumed all three drinks during a two-hour time frame. "I'm telling my friends and family don't drink them".
