A warning has been issued over Jagerbomb cocktails after a teenager nearly died from downing 10 in quick succession.

Jayde Dinsdale, 18, from Yeovil, suffered three heart attacks the morning after knocking back the drinks on a night out.

She ‘died’ momentarily before being resuscitated and placed in an induced coma.

Thankfully she has since made a full recovery.

She has now warned others to avoid the drinks, which are a mixture of high-alcohol liqueur and high- caffeine energy drink.

“You’ve no idea how much caffeine is in them and how dangerous they can be,” she told the Daily Mail.

“I hope people will think twice about energy drinks. They could be deadly.

“The doctors have said it is all to do with the energy drinks. Alcohol slows your heart rate but the energy drinks speed it up.”

Medical experts say while most people can tolerate caffeine in moderation excessive consumption can lead to seizures and strokes.

    And here's the problem with our society... I hope people will think twice about energy drinks... Yes love, it's all down to caffeine, nothing to do with your alcholism. No sympathy here, bill her for the hospital costs and send her to AA!

    Jagermeister = 70% proof so 35% ABV, so for every 1 litre there is 35 units. 1 shot = 25ml = 2.5% of a litre = 2.5% of 35 units = 0.875 units per bomb. I truely believe that it was probably a pre-existing condition exacerbated by the caffine, but the caffine + alcohol would of worn off whilst she slept so a very minimal amount would of been left? I think this story doesn't tell the whole truth about the issue and is just being used to peddle someone's agenda. As for "consumption" then technically anything could be "potentially lethal", go drink 20 pints of water ;) nice title Citizen.

    The internet is not very helpful here. It suggests that a single jagerbomb might contain anything between 0.9 units and 4 units of alcohol, depending on the way that it has been made up and the alcohol content of the liqueur. I think that we can take an educated guess that the case in point was caused by high alcohol jagerbombs, or perhaps very large ones.

    It's the equivalent of about 4 pints of alcohol ?

    You must be stupid to drink that much of jagerbombs.

    10 jagermisters at 25ml = 8.75 units of alcohol (35% hence worked that one out) and she says (in the national press) that the jagerbombs are the ONLY things she drank that night, it's complete bull! 8.75 units and she went home at 2 and had the issue at 10, so that's 8 hours, so even if she downed them all at 2am they would of pretty much been out of the "average person's" body.

    tishwash, it takes way longer than a few hours for the alcohol to wear off. I know from documentaries that it can take between 12 and 24 hours for a drunk person to have blood alcohol low enough to drive lawfully. Remember, this was a huge alcohol consumption together with massive caffeine. You're not going to wake up fine the next morning.

    So much bull in this whole story! 10 - well go see MooMoo's on a Monday night ? loads of people drink a lot more than 10 are fine. Also they fitting a pacemaker, that's usually when there's a pre-existing un-diagnosed condition prior to collapse, the alcohol + caffine may have brought it on but it wasn't that alone that caused the problem. 1/2 a can per drink - yeah right, I've never known anywhere where you get that much. Oh and it happened at 10am when the alcohol had worn off ? don't you think the body will have processed the majority of the caffine in 8 hours sleep too ?

    dcfc79 - shhhhhhh. Don't give the idiots running the show ideas. People sometimes die in car accidents - but keep quiet, or driving will be banned. Some illnesses (and deaths) are caused through the reckless stupidity of the individuals involved - the rest of the population have a few more braincells, and know what's right / wrong, good / bad.
