Death By Whipped Cream: Well Known Fitness Blogger Loses Her Life Unexpectedly
Well known French fitness blogger, Rebecca Burger was only 32 years old when she died from cardiac arrest on Sunday, June 18th after being struck by an exploding whipped cream dispenser. According to her family in a post on Facebook, this was a "domestic accident."
Following her untimely passing, Burger's family announced her death on Wednesday using her Instagram account to forewarn over 200,000 followers that "tens of thousands" of the "defective devices" are still in circulation.
It was just last Saturday that the fitness model was rushed to a hospital before passing away on Sunday. However, so far French prosecutors have only stated they are still "determining the circumstances of her death."
While the French police have hesitated to blame the whipped cream dispenser on her untimely death her family has not been so quiet.
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 caption reads:

They went on to say:
Do not use this kind of utensil in your home. Tens of thousands of defective devices are still in circulation.
Burger was a well known competitive fitness model.
Her resume includes:
-Placing in the top 10 at 2015's Arnold Classic Amateur in the United States, and
-Winning the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness' French National Championship Bikini event in 2014.
Our hearts go out to her family in her time of need and we can only hope that her memory continues to inspire people everywhere to embrace a fit lifestyle!
It must be terribly difficult for her family to come to terms with this death. No news of a tragedy is easy to receive, but it must be especially hard when someone as healthy and fit (like this fitness blogger) passes away in such a horrifying way.
