MIT student dies after falling off cliff in India

Posted: Updated:
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - A Rhode Island native who was working on her doctorate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has died in India after she reportedly slipped while jogging and fell several hundred feet off a cliff.
  
MIT officials announced Sunday that 28-year-old Kaitlin Goldstein was found dead Saturday in a ravine below a trail in a remote area of northern India known as Ladakh where she went running on the morning of June 14. Her parents told MIT officials that Goldstein, known as Kate, apparently slipped on some loose rock.
  
MIT says the Providence native was in India to participate in a workshop on energy and development workshop. She also was going to help install solar panels at a Buddhist monastery.
  
Goldstein was a fourth-year graduate student at MIT studying architecture.
