I was surprise Saturday morning to see an item that Sheryl Sandberg's husband died suddenly Friday night. The story was VERY under wraps. He was 47.
We someone (with a couple) so high profile, you typically see more details about the death. For 36+ hours there were stories about how wonderful he
was, how healthy he was, and how sudden his Friday night death was. It was so quiet in fact that you might begin to suspect suicide or something else
that the family couldn't begin to discuss or wrap their heads around. But none of the press about how amazing he is/was, how great their marriage
was, what an exemplary business man he is/was, and what a great, positive family man would give that any credence.
So the news broke today that he died from a head trauma. That always freaks me out a bit. So I clicked and read the article on Yahoo. The story was
that the family was on vacation together in Mexico, he went to work out Friday evening at 4pm, and was found around 6:30pm in the resort gym lying in
a pool of blood by a treadmill with a traumatic injury to the back of his head. He still supposedly had vital signs but died soon after at a local
The comments section of the story is where it gets very interesting. People are chiming in on how dangerous treadmills are and referencing Harry
Reid's bout. They are speculating on how you fall on a treadmill (face first people presumed) and get an injury to the back of the lower head. Some
said you may fall of the back and hit something behind the treadmill but it's typically the top of the head. Some people said that many people run
backwards on treadmills and thus could fall with the back of your head toward the equipment. Some people make references to their wealth and the fact
that Mexico isn't safe for people with money and position. Some people want to know where the surveilance video is of the gym. Some people want to
know why it took 2.5 hours to find him and why a high-priced resort wouldn't have more people in a gym between 4 and 6:30 pm to see him. It is all
weird. Here's the article: news.yahoo.com...
Some people noted that they heard he had a massive heart attack (I didn't see that), then an injury, then massive head trauma. It is possible that
there was a hit on him...but why? Who knows. It is definitely tragic...and still most people are left thinking...this is VERY fishy. They are
suggesting Mrs. Sandberg get him OUT of Mexico for another autopsy.) Anyone else following this story or have thoughts?
