PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) --

A South Florida doctor has died after authorities say she was accidentally strangled by a electronic neck massager on Christmas Eve.

Kenneth Gegerson called 911 after finding his wife's body on the
bedroom floor next to the neck massager. Paramedics pronounced
37-year-old Michelle Ferrari-Gegerson dead at the scene.
Authorities believe her necklace got caught in the massager and it
quickly tightened around her neck.

According to Broward Sheriff's authorities, Ferrari-Gegerson
spent the evening wrapping gifts and getting ready for work while
using the massager to relieve neck pain.

Detective did not specify the type of massager, saying it's
still an active investigation.
