A French fitness blogger has been killed by an exploding whipped cream dispenser which hit her in the chest, giving her a heart attack.
Rebecca Burger’s family announced her death on social media, where she has amassed a following of more than 200,000 with her fitness focused posts.
They said the 33-year-old died as the result of a ‘domestic accident’ at her home in eastern France, and later shared a photograph of the dispenser which killed her.
In their post, the family explained how it exploded and flying parts of it hit the young model’s thorax.
French media reported that it brought on a heart attack and that this is what caused her death.
Warning others of the dangers, the family said: ‘This is an example of the cream siphon which exploded and hit Rebecca’s thorax, causing her death.
‘The siphon which caused her death was sealed. Don’t use this product in your homes! Tens of thousands of the faulty devices are already in circulation.’
They did not name the brand of the dispenser.
Women’s Best, the online health store which Burger promoted for online, also mourned her death in an Instagram post.
