Dave Goldberg Cause Of Death: How Did Sheryl Sandberg Ex-Husband Die?
Dave Goldberg died unexpectedly on May 1, 2015, while vacationing with Sandberg at a private beach-front villa near the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Punta Mita, Mexico.
He was pronounced dead at a hospital in Nuevo Vallarta. Goldberg’s death was initially attributed to falling off a treadmill while exercising at a gym and suffering head trauma and blood loss.
Sandberg has subsequently said that her husband’s death was due to an arrhythmia caused by undiagnosed coronary artery disease, and not due to falling from a treadmill.
She has a foundation called Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation, named after herself and her late husband.
