What Is Dry Scooping? Woman Suffers Heart Attack After Trying Tiktok Trend
A TikTok user called Briatney Portillo has shared her terrifying ‘dry scooping’ story to raise awareness of the dangers of the new trend. Now, another woman has taken to TikTok to share her ‘dry scooping’ story and encourage others to learn from her mistakes. Hours after Portillo did the “dry scooping” challenge with the highly caffeinated pre-workout, doctors determined that she suffered a heart attack. In fact, the death-defying trend that prompts participants to ingest a mound of undiluted supplemental energy powder caused 20-year-old stripper and OnlyFans star Briatney Portillo to suffer a heart attack.
- The video posted above is the one that went viral with 2.3 million views, 335k likes, and almost 7k comments including some who claimed that she was making this all up.
- In another TikTok video, she said that she added a clip of herself in hospital and said that she was “trying to help people not make the same mistake”.
- Apart from her OnlyFans account, Portillo also shares TikTok videos that have thousands of views.
- According to a follow-up video, Portillo began to experience a heavy chest and chest pains during her workout but ignored it at first, along with the nausea and fatigue.
- “The cops and EMTs were like, ‘Maybe it’s just anxiety because you’re about to dance,’” recalled Portillo, who’s worked as a stripper for more than a year.
There is a trend going on to have a spoonful of dry stuff like cinnamon and then workout. Some pre-workouts have 250 milligrams of caffeine in one scoop, which according to the USDA is three times the amount in a coffee. The powders tend not to be highly regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration, meaning the amount of caffeine in it can be hard to know for sure. Boiling also told Health.com that choking is another big risk factor when swallowing powders whole, just like the cinnamon challenge. Kathryn Boling, MD, a primary care physician at Baltimore’s Mercy Medical Center told Health.com that the amount of caffeine all at once is a concern. Portillo is doing better now and has been cleared to workout again but she’s been told to avoid caffeine for now, reported the Daily Dot.
Who Is Briatney Portillo And What Happened To Her?
And while she was in the middle of having the heart attack in April, first responders didn’t think she was in cardiac arrest either. After arriving at work she called an ambulance where she was rushed to hospital. In another TikTok video, she said that she added a clip of herself in hospital and said that she was “trying to help people not make the same mistake”. “The whole thing was really traumatic,” she said before cautioning other young fans of the virtual platform against participating in potentially dangerous trends.

“In the locker room of my job, I started getting hot, even though it was cold in there. I started sweating a lot and was drenched even though I was wearing a bikini,” she told Buzzfeed. According to a follow-up video, Portillo began to experience a heavy chest and chest pains during her workout but ignored it at first, along with the nausea and fatigue. Instead of feeling energized, the powder left the woman feeling tingly and itchy at first, a common side effect people typically feel after taking pre-workout.

According to The Smoking Gun, this image shows a woman who was arrested in 2008 during a raid by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at St. James Place Cabaret in Houston, Texas. A piece of satire went viral because an image of this alleged stripper resembled actress Amy Poehler. “I realized I needed to call 911 when the chest pain got more intense and my left side felt kinda dead. I also was sweating profusely,” said Portillo. The doctors even gave her the green light to take a vacation to Miami that she’d been planning for the following week. But for Portillo, who exercises on a weekly basis, the prospect of garnering online popularity wasn’t her motivation for attempting the dry-scoop trend.
