Police: Woman Killed By Neck Massager In Freak Accident
KHQ.COM - A Florida doctor looking to relieve some holiday stress was killed by her mechanical neck massager, police said.
Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson of Parkland finished wrapping presents in her bedroom on Christmas Eve, authorities say, when she apparently decided to use an electrical massager on her neck.
"The massager got entangled with a necklace, and it probably caused her to black out very quickly," said Jim Leljedal of the Broward County Sheriff's Department.
Ferrari-Gegerson's husband, Kenneth, came home and found her unconscious with the neck massager next to her body. He called for help, but the 37-year-old was pronounced dead shortly afterwards. Authorities have not revealed which brand of neck massager was used.
Ferrari-Gegerson was an associate professor at the University of Florida and worked in the emergency room at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
