An exploding whipped cream dispenser reportedly killed a French fitness star — here's how it could have happened. French fitness blogger Rebecca Burger died June 18 after a whipped cream dispenser reportedly exploded and struck her chest. According to the BBC, Burger died of cardiac arrest following the freak accident, which her family has said was caused by a faulty dispenser.

The device was not the kind of canister in which pre-whipped cream is typically packaged and sold in the United States. Instead, the dispenser — sometimes also called a charger — is designed so that users can pour regular whipping cream into it, and then get freshly whipped cream out. Burger's family shared a photo of the device, along with a warning about it, on Instagram. A post shared by Rebecca Burger (@rebeccablikes) on Jun 20, 2017 at 12:08pm PDT Jun 20, 2017 at 12:08pm PDT. Dispensers like this typically require "charger" cartridges, or capsules, that are filled with a tasteless gas called nitrous oxide. Each cartridge is usually about the size of a thumb and weighs about 25 grams (8 grams of which is the pressurized nitrous oxide).
The charger attaches to the dispenser, which punctures it, releasing the pressurized gas into the tightly sealed container. By the laws of physics, gas particles want to spread out, so they naturally flow out of the opening in the cartridge and disperse throughout the container. The gas gets mixed into the cream in the form of tiny bubbles, and when the cream is dispensed from the container, those bubbles have even more room to expand. It's why a whipped cream dispenser can whip cream so much faster than a person could by hand. In Burger's case, however, the dispenser malfunctioned and exploded, sending one of these cartridges into her thorax, or chest — that is, according to the description posted by her family. Pressurizing an air-tight container can turn it into a rocket, since the condensed gas inside will rapidly shoot out of any available opening.
A prime example of this the soda bottle-rocket experiment.
