Aunt Tammy Chavis says the teen drank two gallons of water and two more gallons of Gatorade. Oliver's mother picked him up because he couldn't drive, and he later collapsed at home and was taken to the hospital by helicopter. Relatives say doctors told them Oliver suffered massive swelling around the brain from over-hydration. The coroner says an autopsy is planned.
