Jasmine Willis downed seven double espressos, while working at the familly owned The Sandwich Bar which sent her into a state of emotional swings that resulted in random laughing and random crying. Her father sent her home at which point she came down with a fever and had difficulty breathing before she was sent to the hospital for treatment. At the hospital it was confirmed that she had overdosed on caffeine.
After being allowed home from hospital she suffered side effects for days and now cannot face the sight of coffee.
She said: "I felt exhausted for days afterwards. I did not realise this could happen to you and I only hope other people learn from my mistake."
