In a bizzarre tragedy, French fitness blogger Rebecca Burger passed away suddenly and unexpectedly due to the explosion of a can of whipped cream.

The canister, which was part of a recall by the manufacturer in 2013, struck her in the chest, killing her.

Her family later posted a photo of the canister that exploded and led to her eventual death.

The canisters were known to have a defect that caused them to explode, leading the manufacturer to issue a recall in 2013. There have been several other reports of their spontaneous combustion.

In many instances they have resulted in broken bones in the head or chest, but this is the first reported death.
