Goggin had a heart attack while buried. Friends said he suffered from swelling in the brain and was in a medically induced coma afterward before passing away.

“He’s got a beautiful wife, three great kids… just a phenomenal guy. The world is definitely at a loss without him,” said longtime friend Joe Long.

Police said he was digging in an area marked “Do Not Enter”.​
