As the news of her death sank in, Kris, Lanna’s mom went public with what she had not believed to be the cause of her daughter’s death. Not only was Lanna dehydrated on that day, but she had not drunk any water; all she drunk was a health drink. In fact, she drank Red Bull just moments before she collapsed on the beach floor.
According to cardiologist Jack Wolfsen, the excessive amounts of caffeine and sugar in health drinks were the problem. “There is ample medical evidence that such things can cause a lot of harm to the natural rhythm of the heart and impact a lot on the blood pressure,” he says to KSAZ Fox 10.
