Lawsuit Filed Against Monster Beverage For Teen’s Death

A new lawsuit has been filed against Monster Beverage alleging that a teenager died last year from cardiac arrhythmia caused by habitually drinking the company’s energy drink.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Alameda County Superior Court. It alleges that 19-year-old Alex Morris would not have died if he had not consumed two cans of the energy drink every day for the three years before his death, including the day he died.

The lawsuit said Morris went into cardiac arrest during the early morning of July 1 and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The family of a 14-year-old Maryland girl also sued the company last year after she consumed two 24-ounce cans of Monster and died.

Monster representatives did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
