Instagram model killed after whipped cream can explodes

The family of a 33-year-old French Instagram model said she died after a whipped cream container exploded and struck her in the chest.

Rebecca Burger's Instagram account had amassed more than 165,000 followers. Her family posted a picture of a can similar to the one that killed her:

"Here's an example of the whip cream canister that exploded and struck Rebecca's chest, resulting in her death. Let us be precise: the siphon that cause her death was sealed. Do not use this type of device in your home! Tens of thousands of these defective appliances are still in circulation."

Prosecutors are investigating if the siphon that was used to create the dispenser was defective. Burger had a heart attack after the can hit her chest, and was taken to the hospital unconscious where she died the next day.
