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

Asst. 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.
