(Scroll down for video) A young woman was found dead in a machine, which she praised just before she died.
24-year-old Chelsea Ake, who is from Hawaii, worked at the salon called Rejuvenice in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On the day of the tragedy, Ake closed the salon and entered the cryotherapy chamber after hours while no one else was there.
Last week, Ake explained the benefits of cryotherapy, saying that it was “an unorthodox treatment that is becoming more popular.”
Cryotherapy entails exposing the body to sub-zero temperatures and can have great benefits, particularly after traditional facial and moisturizer treatment.
Dr. Mehmet Oz spoke about the benefits of Cryotherapy, saying that it helps for pain and reduces inflammation.
The cryotherapy chamber exposes clients to extremely cold, dry air for two to four minutes. Temperatures can reach minus 240 degrees.
Sadly, while Ake was inside the machine, it malfunctioned and she froze to death. Ake’s body was found in the chamber 10 hours after she entered.
