Killed by caffeine
Stole headline from CBS but left it generic and non-specific to any one case since we seem to be hearing more about caffeine-related deaths these days.
This first one pertains to 18 yr old Logan Stiner, who died after using caffeine powder.
The coroner ruled the cause of death to be a lethal dosage of pure caffeine.
"We had never seen this before," coroner Stephen Evans told CBS News.
Evans said Stiner, a high school wrestler, was a healthy young man, but that the amount of caffeine in his system caused a cardiac arrhythmia and a seizure. CBS.comHOPING I CAN HELP
