If you haven't heard of Cryotherapy, it is used for weight loss, skin rejuvenation, and health benefits. Also, Lindsay Lohan is a huge advocate for the practice, so you know it's legitimate.
Rejuvenice in Henderson, Nevada offers this service, which is only meant to last for no more than three minutes, as temperatures drop to below 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
What seems like the start of a horror film is unfortunately very real. Salon manager Chelsea Ake was found dead last week inside the machine. It is believed that she had gone inside by herself and then suffocated. Investigators have deemed her death an "operator error."
Police suspect they found her after she had been stuck for ten hours.
KSNV chatted with her best friend Shae-Lynn Bee, where she discussed Ake's closing routine:
“I do know that she was alone closing the shop up, and then did go into the machine and apparently did not turn off. It’s very frustrating to know because there are no cameras in there so basically the only person that does know what happened is Chelsea.”
Bee traveled to Nevada to recover Ake's body, while family and friends took to social media to express their deep grief at such a bizarre death.
We send our condolences to Ake's friends and family. While this might sound like the introduction of a horror film, this is sadly very real. Rest in peace, Chelsea Ake.
