A coroner says a 16-year-old SC high school student had an otherwise healthy heart before he died from heart problems linked to drinking too much caffeine.
A caffeine overdose killed a SC teenager last month, the Richland County coroner said Monday.
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.
Richland County Coroner Gary Watts say an excessive amount of caffeine ultimately led to the death of a Midlands high school student.
A combination of Diet Mountain Dew, a latte from McDonald's, and an energy drink - all within two hours - proved deadly for a 16-year-old in South Carolina, The State reported on Monday. "And that's what happened in this case", Watts said in a news conference.

The Stars, with a 5.8 per cent chance of winning the lottery, also had a good day, moving up into the No. 3 overall spot. The 26-year-old defenseman, who has been playing with a foot injury, also logged more than 28 minutes in the win.
Watts said an autopsy of Cripe showed no signs of an "unfounded" or "undiagnosed heart condition". He added that Davis had "a previous history of drinking" caffeinated beverages but nothing that his family considered to be an addiction.
The third incident cited by the website was about a Japanese man who died after mixing energy drinks with caffeine pills.
Watts said Davis had purchased the latte at McDonald's around 12:30 p.m. "You can have five people line up, and all of them do the exact same thing with him that day, drink more; it may not have any type of effect on them at all". Healthline reports that the recommended daily caffeine limit should not exceed 400 mg for a healthy adult.
"It wasn't a vehicle crash that took his life", he said of his son.
Watts did not specify which energy drinks were consumed, but in general, a 24-ounce energy drink can contain as much as 500 milligrams of caffeine. "It's the amount and also the time frame in which these caffeinated beverages are consumed that can put you at risk". "Parents, please talk to your kids about these energy drinks".
