    Exclamation Florida Doctor, killed by neck massager in freak accident

    Sorry if this was posted elsewhere, read this this afternoon and find it hard to believe that this would happen to a Doctor. I think there is more to this story, what do the experts here think?

    Pretty odd story given that they won't disclose what kind of massager was being used.
    Just My Opinion

    I think we're going to find out there is a little more to this story.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    She worked in an emergency room and was an associate professor, she should have known better than to mix necklaces and neck massagers. Hmmmmm. The necklace didn't break? What kind of necklace would that be??

    Ok, I was driving home last night, thinking about this case, and this point hit me:

    Florida woman, Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson, killed by neck massager in freak accident: police
    By Michael Sheridan

    Monday, January 3rd 2011, 9:52 AM


    "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.
    So, the husband wasn't home, but the neck massager got entangled with her necklace enough to cause her to pass out, very quickly allegedly. OK, then how in the heck did it unentangle itself from the necklace and fall to beside her body????? In my simple little mind, if it was tight enough to cause her to black out and DIE, how could it have fallen off??????? AND the necklace didn't break. Hmmmmm. What were her hands doing? Tied up with Christmas bows? HMMMMMMMMM.

    maybe auto erotic asphyxia and the cord was purposely around her neck and the massager was never on her neck?

    From what I read about this somewhere, the necklace was like a thick, dense leather piece. And, I would imagine that in her struggle to get it off and panicking, that it's feasible that it would fall to the floor. There definitely could be something to it other than an incredible accident, but this is what my understanding of it was. I thought I also read that the husband was in the next room with the child, but not positive about this. I guess the truth will hopefully come out if there is foul play!

    yeah. Possibly some pain medication involved too, if she was using a massager? Some of those are a bit top-heavy and awkward to handle behind you. I have one that's shaped like ET, and even though it probably weighs only 2 pounds, feels like a lot more when trying to use it.

    I invision one of those imitation hands type massagers. I'd think she would be able to yank the cord and unplug it or something.

    The Broward Sheriff’s Office, ending its investigation into the Christmas Eve death of Dr. Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson, has determined that she died in a freak accident involving a neck massager.

    Ferrari-Gegerson, 37, a Miami radiologist, was using the ShoulderFlex Deep Kneading Shiatsu massager in a bedroom of her Parkland home about 9 p.m. Dec. 24, 2010.

    That’s when things went horribly wrong: The device became ensnared in a leather cord necklace she was wearing and strangled her, according to a BSO report released Wednesday.

    FDA Warns People To Stop Using Massager Linked To Doctor’s Death

    If you click on the video it shows a picture of the massager. There was also a second near-strangulation incident.
