Goggin was taken to Flagler Hospital in critical condition after being buried in two to three feet of sand.

According to an incident report filled out by responding sheriff’s deputies, family members said they were on their way to the Orlando area to start their vacation when they decided to stop at the beach because they couldn’t check in to their hotel until later in the day.

After spending some time on the beach, Goggin started digging a tunnel near a dune walkover. His sister told one of the deputies that she was recording video of her brother digging the tunnel when the sand collapsed around him. After yelling for other family members to come and help, she told one of them to call 911.

Rachel Goggin Burt posted on Facebook Tuesday that her brother had been pronounced dead.

“It is with great sorrow and sadness that I write this. My precious, big brother is with Jesus. Our hearts are shattered, but we don’t grieve without hope. Lee Goggin is where he has prepared to be. Having accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior, he is in Heaven and we’ll see him again someday. He is reunited with our sweet mom and Mamaw & Papaw! We praise the Lord for that assurance. Please pray for our family! Though it’s difficult to see or feel right now, we know in our hearts that God has a plan for good in all of this, as tragic as it’s been. We know He will provide everything we need in the days, weeks, and months to come. He is our Rock and Hope. Thank you for the prayers, calls, texts, and visits. They have sustained us these past couple of days, and we’re so grateful. Our hearts ache greatly, but Heaven just got so much sweeter than it already was.

I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining. I believe in love, even when I can not feel it. I believe in God, even when he is silent.

Lee, my sweet big brother, we love you so much and can’t wait to be reunited with you one day!”
