Very possible that he suffered the heart attack while riding his bicycle and then fell, not the reverse as the article implies. 50 years is not that old, but still in the range where discussing your fitness activities with your doctor is a very good idea. He or she may suggest some stress tests or educate you on warning signs of heart trouble.

RIP to this man and my condolences to his family and friends.
