SurveyMonkey CEO died of head trauma


A Mexican state official told on Monday that David Goldberg, SurveyMonkey CEO and Husband of Facebook Executive Sheryl Sandberg, died of severe head trauma in an exercise accident. According to the official, he left his room at about 4 p.m. to exercise, and family members went to search for him after he didn’t come back. He was found at about 6:30 p.m. in a gymnasium where he was lying by a treadmill in a pool of blood, with a blow to the lower back of his head. The official said that he apparently had slipped on the treadmill and hit the machine with his head, resulting in severe head trauma and hypovolemic shock, or bleeding.

The official also told that the accident took place at the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita and that the family had checked in on April 30. However, the Four Seasons issued a statement saying the incident did not happen on any of its properties and that David Goldberg was not registered as a guest in any of the rooms, villas or residences.
