SurveyMonkey Chief Executive Dave Goldberg died after he hit his head when he fell off a gym treadmill at a holiday resort.

Goldberg went to the gym at a hotel on Mexico's Pacific coast around 4 pm local time on 1 May and was found by his brother in the evening lying on the floor with a gash to his head, a spokesman for the local state prosecutor's office.

The 47-year-old, who was married to Facebook's Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, showed signs of life when he was found and was rushed to hospital, where he died, the spokesman added, saying his body was flown back to the United States the following day.

Another source familiar with the investigation called it a "tragic accident".
