Rebecca Burger was a French fitness blogger who was killed by an exploding whipped cream dispenser which hit her in the chest, causing her a heart attack.
She was pretty famous on social medias as she had over 160,000 followers on Instagram and around 2,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Her grieving family reported her tragic death on her Instagram page saying
“It is with great sadness we announce the death of Rebecca who died the June 18th, 2017 in an accident in the home.”
Her family said her death was a result of a ‘domestic accident’ which happened at her home in Eastern France. Later they shared a picture of a gas-powered whipped cream canister similar to the one that hit her in the chest, causing a cardiac arrest.
“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.”
We are sorry to announce the sad news of losing this beautiful soul. Our french athlete Rebecca Burger passed away.
Rebecca was not only a great fitness figure but a generous and kind person to work with.
Please pray for her soul to rest in peace and for her family to stay strong.
We will always be proud of you Rebecca ❤
