Rebecca Burger was a French fitness blogger and competitor with more than 200,000 Instagram followers. According to an Instagram post by her family, a pressurized whipped cream canister exploded and hit the 33-year-old in the thorax, which sent her into cardiac arrest last Sunday.
Voici un exemple de siphon à chantilly qui a explosé et percuté le thorax de Rebecca, entraînant son décès. Précision : le siphon qui a engendré sa mort quant à lui été mis sous scellé. N’utilisez pas ce genre d’ustensile chez vous ! Plusieurs dizaines de milliers d’appareils défectueux sont encore en circulation.
The post reads, “This is an example of the whipped cream siphon that exploded and hit Rebecca’s thorax, leading to her death,” her family wrote under a photo of a metal device. “To be clear: The dispenser that led to her death was sealed. Do not use this type of utensil! Tens of thousands of defective devices are still out there.”
French police have confirmed the death but the cause of it is still undetermined.
