BANGOR DAILY NEWS: A 19-year-old woman who wasn’t dressed for the conditions had to be rescued Tuesday morning from [Maine’s] Cadillac Mountain.
Supervisory Park Ranger Richard Rechholtz said the 911 call came in around 7:30 a.m. that a woman was “kind of conscious, not alert and had some heart issues.”
Rechholtz and a paramedic from Bar Harbor Fire Department headed up the mountain by snowmobile, but reached the hikers just moments after a LifeFlight helicopter from Bangor was able to land.
The woman and a male from her hiking party, neither of which were wearing proper footwear, were taken by helicopter to Bar Harbor. The woman, who was from Florida but whose identity was not being released, was transported to MDI Hospital, the ranger said. (READ MORE)
