    5 Gallons of coffee? That would mean she had consumed around 6.4gm of Caffeine which means she would be dead... The lethal dose seems to be around 10mg/kg. The average cup of coffee (8oz.) contains 80-120mg of caffeine. A gallon is 128 oz and would contain 1,280mg-1,920mg.

    This story is mistaken....
