Chelsea Ake’s body was found by employees inside one of the ice machines at Rejuvenice in Henderson, Nev.

Chelsea Ake’s body was found by employees inside one of the ice machines at Rejuvenice in Henderson, Nev.

A young Nevada salon manager was found dead inside a cryochamber, where temperatures reached 240 degrees Fahrenheit below zero, authorities say.

Chelsea Ake’s body was found by employees inside one of the ice machines at Rejuvenice in Henderson, Nev., according to TV station KSNV.

The 24-year-old went into one of the stations by herself while closing up the store alone, her friend Shae-Lynn Bee told the station.

She did not turn the machine off before entering, Bee added.

Ake, a Hawaii native, is believed to have suffocated and was in the chamber for at least 10 hours, authorities said.

Whether Ake accidently locked herself inside or the machine malfunctioned remains a mystery to her friend.

“It’s very frustrating to know because there are no cameras in there so basically the only person that does know what happened is Chelsea,” Bee added.

 A police report says the 24-year old used the machine without any assistance and may have suffocated.

Investigators ruled the death as “operator error” indicating it did not malfunction.

“Tragic ending to a beautiful life. We will all miss you. Rest in Peace,” the salon wrote in its Facebook page.

Whole-body cryotherapy is used to cool the body and is an alternative to ice packs and cold water immersion.

It is only meant to be used for up to three minutes and is popular among athletes who use it for muscle soreness.

Bee wants people to remember her friend not by the freak accident but for the “awesome” person she was.

“Chelsea’s everything to me,” Bee said. “She was my best friend and I’m going to miss her dearly.”

Whole-body cryotherapy is an alternative to cold water or ice for muscle recovery.
