A 16-year-old high school student from South Carolina died last month after overdosing on caffeine.

Davis Cripe drank a McDonald’s Latte, a Diet Mountain Dew and an energy drink, all within two hours.

“I stand before you as a broken-hearted father, and hope that something good can come from this,” said the teen’s father, Sean, during a press conference.

Doctors say that it depends on a lot of factors, from your height and weight, to your tolerance and the amount of time you consume it in.

If you’re a coffee drinker, it would take 50 to 100 cups a day to kill you. But energy drinks can be much more powerful.

About 90 percent of Americans consume caffeine every day.

It has some health benefits, but it can be dangerous in large amounts — especially for children and teens.
