A mother-of-three died after plunging into a river at a cold water therapy camp loved by celebrities including Coleen Rooney

The woman, 39, and two friends paid up to £200 for a two-hour session at Breatheolution in Buxworth, Derbyshire on Monday. They were joined by therapist Kevin O’Neill who runs the camp. 

The woman entered the water and was acclimatising to its temperature when she suddenly collapsed.

Mr O’Neill helped her out of the water and performed CPR while an air ambulance rushed to the location. However, the woman later died in hospital. 

The cold water camp is popular with celebrities and was previously visited by Coleen Rooney in October. 

Coleen, who was joined by her brothers, later posted about the trip online and wrote: ‘What a way to start the week…Monday morning in freezing cold water.’

Other celebrities who have visited the camp include actor Stephen Graham and ex-Manchester United footballer Chris Smalling.

Mr O’Neill said he was ‘reeling’ from the death of the mother-of-three. He told the Sun: ‘I am heartbroken. I’ve not slept and I’m finding it hard to process. I cannot stop thinking about her family. It’s tragic.’

He explained how he helped the woman, who was ‘laughing’ before collapsing, to the bank and performed CPR. 

He also said: ‘I have taken 1,100 people into the water over two years and nothing like this has ever happened. It’s a freak incident and very sadly someone has lost their life.’

Mr O’Neill explained how he requires participants to sign a waiver before asking them their medical history and whether they are on any medication. 

He also warned last year: ‘When you submerge your whole body into cold water it goes through a lot of physiological and chemical changes. You can soon get into trouble.’

A Derbyshire Police spokeswoman said: ‘Several officers attended. Paramedics took the 39-year-old woman to hospital but she was later pronounced dead.

‘There are no suspicious circumstances and we are preparing a file for the coroner.’

Chesterfield Coroners Office has been notified.

What is cold water therapy? 

Cold water therapy is the practice of using water that’s around 59F (15C) to treat health conditions. It’s also known as cold hydrotherapy.

The practice has been around for thousands of years but the trend has recently seen a revival with ice baths, outdoor swims, and cold water immersion therapy sessions.

It is believed the therapy can improve your circulation, deepen your sleep, spike your energy levels, and reduce inflammation in your body.

However, not much research has been done to support the claims. Also, it affects your blood pressure, heart rate, and circulation and so can lead to cardiac stress.

There have been a number of reports of deaths from exposure and heart attacks.
