(Newser) – Laurie Anderson, musician, performance artist, and widow of rocker Lou Reed, went into a hyperbaric chamber in Chelsea's Pure Flow spa last week ... and couldn't get out. The 67-year-old texted a friend when the chamber's zipper got stuck and she started experiencing shortness of breath, and that friend called 911.
