Espresso coffee overdose14th August 2007
Teenager Jasmine Willis was taken to hospital after overdosing on espresso coffee.
The 17-year-old student from Stanley, County Durham, developed a fever and began hyperventilating after drinking seven double espressos while working at a sandwich shop run by her family.
She was taken to the University Hospital of North Durham, where doctors confirmed she had overdosed on caffeine. Jasmine was allowed home after a few hours observation and has made a full recovery but is now warning others about the dangers of excessive coffee drinking.
