3 people die when influencer decided to celebrate her birthday in a dry ice pool



Ekaterina Didenko, Russian “chemist and pharmaceuticals expert” influencer with more than a million and a half followers, celebrated her 29th birthday with a pool filled with dry ice.

Her husband, Valentin Didenko, and 2 more partygoers died when dipping into the pool due to pulmonary edemas after breathing in the gas.

Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and which produces heavy vapour when put into water. The vapour can cause high levels of carbon dioxide in the blood when released in a poorly ventilated space.

The couple wanted the dry ice 'to create an impressive steam show' for Instagram, but as soon as the ice was poured, people started fainting. Moments earlier, guests had been laughing and clinking glasses.

The 'preliminary reason for the death of three (partygoers) was mechanical asphyxia because their airways were blocked'. Other guests had to be hospitalized due to chemical burns and severe respiratory problems.
