Grant Wahl’s wife reveals cause of death –


(NewsNation) — Renowned American soccer journalist Grant Wahl’s wife announced Wednesday that he died from an aortic aneurysm that ruptured, CBS News reported.

Dr. Celine Gounder revealed the cause of Wahl’s death in an interview on CBS Mornings.

Gounder shared a statement on Twitter, expressing her and Wahl’s family’s deepest gratitude for the support they had received following Wahl’s unexpected death at the Qatar World Cup.

In the note, Gounder said An autopsy performed by the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office revealed the Wahl “died from the rupture of a slowly growing, undetected ascending aortic aneurysm with hemopericardium.”

“The chest pressure he experienced shortly before his death may have represented the initial symptoms,” she continued. “No amount of CPR or shocks would have saved him. His death from him was unrelated to COVID. His death of him was unrelated to vaccination status. There was nothing nefarious about his death from him.”

Wahl, an American journalist who helped grow the popularity of soccer in the United States and reported on some of the biggest stories in the sport, was 49 at the time of his death.
