Playboy model dies after trip to the chiropractor

(NBC) — A Los Angeles coroner has ruled on the death of Playboy model Katie May.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter cited neck manipulation as the cause of the 34-year-old model’s injuries that led to her death.

According to the coroner, May died from a blunt force injury that tore her left vertebral artery in February. The injury, brought on by a trip to a chiropractor for an adjustment following a fall, essentially decreased blood flow to the brain.

May’s death was ruled accidental.
