Ka­tie May died af­ter chi­ro­prac­tor to­re open ar­tery

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

USA - The de­ath of a po­pu­lar Play­boy mo­del was brought on by a ‘neck ma­ni­pu­la­ti­on by chi­ro­prac­tor’ af­ter she suf­fe­red an in­ju­ry du­ring a photo shoot.

Ka­tie May fell du­ring a shoot in Los An­ge­les ear­lier this year and was la­ter ta­ken to the hos­pi­tal for neck pain but re­lea­sed la­ter that day. The 34-year-old, who­se po­pu­la­ri­ty ear­ned her the tit­le ‘Qu­een of Snapchat’ from Play­boy, was still in pain when she posted this mes­sa­ge to her Twitter: ‘Pin­ched a ner­ve in my neck on a Pho­to­shoot and got ad­ju­sted this mor­ning. It re­al­ly hurts! Any ho­me re­me­dy sug­ge­s­ti­ons lo­ves? XOXO.’

It see­ms that the trip to her chi­ro­prac­tor to fix things on­ly ma­de it wor­se though ac­cor­ding to TMZ, and ul­ti­ma­te­ly led to her de­ath af­ter a tear to an ar­tery in her neck stop­ped the flow of blood to her brain.

The sin­gle mom left be­hind a se­ven-year-old daugh­ter Mia.

Her de­ath has been ru­led an ac­ci­dent, and it is not known if her fa­mi­ly plans to pur­sue legal ac­ti­on against the chi­ro­prac­tor. A GoFundMe cam­paign was laun­ched at the ti­me to rai­se mo­ney for May’s daugh­ter. The fund­rai­sing pa­ge, which has drawn mo­re than USD 36,000 in do­na­ti­ons, reads: ‘Ka­tie’s fa­mi­ly plans on using any mo­ney rai­sed to help pay for edu­ca­ti­on, Mia’s dai­ly li­fe and to help her dad with the costs of pa­ren­ting.’

The bombshell blon­de, who­se pho­tos ha­ve ap­pe­a­red in such pu­bli­ca­ti­ons as Play­boy Ma­ga­zi­ne and Sports Il­lu­stra­ted, had a mas­si­ve fan ba­se, with clo­se to 2 mil­li­on fol­lo­wers on In­st­agram alo­ne.

In her fi­nal In­st­agram mes­sa­ge, which was posted just days be­fo­re her de­ath, she wro­te: “Ho­pe eve­ry­o­ne is ha­ving a gre­at Mon­day! It’s very win­dy he­re to­day.”

The post was ac­com­pa­nied by a photo of the sta­tu­esque mo­del po­sing in a cheeky ba­thing suit in La­gu­na Beach, Ca­li­for­nia. It has drawn mo­re than 41,000 ‘li­kes’ as of Thurs­day.

In an in­ter­view with the Huf­fing­ton Post ear­lier this year, May re­ve­a­led that she grew up in a small to­wn out­si­de Pitts­burgh, the youn­gest of four child­ren. Both her pa­rents we­re tea­chers who wor­ked mul­ti­ple jobs to sup­port their fa­mi­ly.
