A Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate died Wednesday when he fell to his death on campus, as he tried to climb the Great Dome — a time-honored tradition of one-upsmanship at the prestigious Cambridge university, authorities said. Computer programmer Nicholas Paggi — a 2015 MIT grad and a Bayville, New Jersey native — was with roommates who are MIT graduate students when he fell. “He came down the side of one of the roofs, came across the front and slipped going back up the other side,” his mother, Helga Paggi, told CBS in Boston from her home in Toms River, New Jersey.

    • 'Horrifying' execution of US inmate: lawyer

      The last of four US prisoners rushed to death by the state of Arkansas after intense legal battles, jerked and convulsed in a "horrifying" end to his life, his lawyer said Friday, as the UN and EU renewed their opposition to the death penalty. Kenneth Williams, a 38-year-old convicted multiple murderer, was the last of four inmates put to death over the space of a week -- the first such executions by the conservative southern state since 2005. "Press reports state that within three minutes into the execution, our client began coughing, convulsing, jerking and lurching with sound that was audible even with the microphone turned off," lawyer Shawn Nolan said in a statement.
