Broward doctor dies after bizarre accident with neck massager

PARKLAND, FL (CNN) - A bizarre accident involving a neck massager has killed a well-respected South Florida doctor.

Police say Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson had just finished wrapping some presents on Christmas Eve and was using a neck massager when the device strangled her.

Her husband found her unconscious on their bedroom floor.

"The massager got entangled with a necklace, and it probably caused her to black out very quickly," Broward County Sheriff Jim Leljedal said.

Ferrari-Gegerson had worked as a radiologist at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami since 2001.
