Nevada woman found dead inside cryochamber capable of reaching -240 degrees

Published

on

Officials in Las Vegas are citing “operator error” in the death of a 24-year-old woman found inside a cryotherapy chamber at a business where she was the manager, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

According to the state Occupation Safety and Heath Administration, Chelsea Ake-Salvacion was in the machine for more than 10 hours when her body was discovered inside the chamber at Rejuvenice.

“It’s similar to microdermabrasion, but instead of crystals that exfoliate the skin, it’s more of a suction machine,” she said of using the chamber in a story published late last week. “After that, we apply a serum that protects the outer layer of the skin and moisturizes it. We like to do the cryofacial afterward because it helps seal everything in.”

Ake-Salvacion said the treatment protects the skin by removing dead skin cells. The procedure gained attention nationally after pro basketball star LeBron James said he was employing it to deal with nagging injuries.

KLNV-TV reported that the chambers at Rejuvenice could reach temperatures of -240 degrees Farenheit.

“I do know that she was alone closing the shop up, and then did go into the machine and apparently did not turn off,” said a friend of the deceased, Shae-Lynn Bee.

KLNV reported that normally, a technician is present when the machine is being used by a client, to ensure that the client’s head is clear of the chamber to grant them access to oxygen.

Prince Andrew’s fate in potential Epstein lawsuit entirely in the hands of Donald Trump

Published

on

MSNBC legal analyst Danny Cevallos said President Donald Trump has a unique ability to tip the scales in one possible legal case related to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

The "Morning Joe" contributor was discussing the latest developments in the case, after Epstein's death earlier this month in jail -- two days after signing a new will.

"You can't hold the attorneys liable because someone wants to prepare a will," Cevallos said, "but remember, they fought to take him off suicide watch and they had to say he's not a suicide risk. otherwise, they would have kept him on suicide watch."

‘Size always matters to this president’: MSNBC contributor shreds Trump for obsessing over his own emotional needs

Published

on

MSNBC's Eugene Robinson ridiculed President Donald Trump's obsession with his persistent unpopularity, which distracts him from his basic duties as chief executive.

The Washington Post columnist and "Morning Joe" contributor bashed the president for attempting to justify his narrow election win nearly three years ago instead of growing into his job, and he said that disconnect was "insane."

"Size always matters to this president," Robinson said, "and he's completely obsessed with this idea because it's true that he won a very narrow electoral victory and lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, and this drives him crazy and will continue to drive him crazy."
