Goldberg leaves his room at about 4 p.m. to exercise. After he fails to return, family members go look for him and find him around 6:30 p.m. in one of the resort’s gymnasiums, lying by a treadmill in a pool of blood, with a blow to the lower back of his head. He apparently had slipped on the treadmill and hit the machine. Goldberg still has vital signs when he was discovered, but later dies at a hospital in Nuevo Vallarta. The cause of death is severe head trauma and bleeding.
