IvyGate reported yesterday that Michele Dufault, a senior at Yale University, was killed in a tragic machine-shop-related incident late Tuesday night.

The blog quoted AP,

Michele Dufault, a senior majoring in astronomy, died Tuesday night “in what appears to have been a terrible accident involving a piece of equipment,” school officials said Wednesday. The school said the accident took place inside a chemistry lab machine shop but didn’t say what the equipment was.

The university told the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration that Dufault was operating the machinery for a senior project when she was killed, according to Kang Yi, an assistant area director for OSHA in Bridgeport, Conn.

Our deepest condolences go out to our friends and neighbors over at Yale and beyond. We will grieve with you, care for you, and stand with you over the loss of this promising life.
