French fitness model Rebecca Burger was reportedly killed by an exploding whipped cream dispenser over the weekend.

The 33-year-old lifestyle blogger and fitness model died at her home in France after the "exploding cream dispenser hit her in the chest and triggered a heart attack," according to The Sun.

Burger's family called the incident a "domestic accident," and investigators are looking into the death, The Sun reported, adding that a leading consumer group said it warned that some of the dispensers had defects and were dangerous to users.

Relatives issued a statement to Burger's 200,000 Facebook and Instagram fans following the untimely and fatal incident.

"It is with great sadness we announce the death of Rebecca who died on June 18th, 2017 in an accident in the home," the statement said, according to The New York Daily News.

The family also posted a picture of the specific type of cream dispenser that caused Rebecca’s death, warning people not to use it. The caption that went along with the image was typed in French.

"This is an example of the cream siphon which exploded and hit Rebecca’s thorax, causing her death," the family said, according to The Sun.

"The siphon which caused her death was sealed. Don’t use this product in your homes! Tens of thousands of the faulty devices are already in circulation," they added.

"Rebecca was a great athlete and a kind and generous person with whom to work," the family said. "Pray for her to rest in peace and for her family to remain strong. We will always be proud of you Rebecca."
