Semester finals have been cancelled Monday at Ohio Christian University after one of the students there died in a fall near Old Man's Cave Saturday.

The Columbus Dispatch, citing the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, wrote that Josias Rodriguez, 19, left a marked trail and fell 60 feet from a rock face.

Monday finals at OCU were cancelled to allow students to attend a 1:00 P.M. memorial service on campus.

The story also said that another person, a 23-year-old Chillicothe-area woman was also injured in a separate 100 foot fall when she and her boyfriend were hiking at Cantwell Cliffs, also at Hocking Hills.
