BOZEMAN, Mont -

A Montana State University student who was on an academic spring break trip to London has died in a fall.

MSU spokesman Tracy Ellig says 24-year-old Aaron Plowman apparently climbed onto the roof of an abandoned building early Friday and died in a fall after the roof collapsed.

Plowman was a senior English major from Soulsbyville, Calif.

London Metropolitan Police responded and told MSU officials that Plowman's death was accidental.

Plowman was one of 14 students on the 10-day "Shakespeare's England" trip led by Gretchen Minton, an associate professor of English.  Ellig says the other students on the trip have returned to Bozeman.

Last May, associate professor Betsy Palmer died of injuries suffered in a landslide during an MSU study abroad trip to Nepal.
