APNewsBreak: Sick woman could leave Pole on Friday
Question of the Day
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman who has been trying to leave the South Pole since late August says she could be on a plane as early as Friday.
Fifty-eight-year-old Renee Douceur is the station manager for Raytheon Polar Services, which has a contract with the National Science Foundation’s South Pole research station.
She’s been asking for an emergency evacuation since Aug. 26 when she had what she thought was a stroke, but officials denied her request.
In a phone interview Tuesday, Douceur told The Associated Press that she likely will fly out on a cargo plane scheduled to arrive and depart on Friday.
Douceur also says doctors she contacted for a second opinion believe a tumor or something else may be causing her vision, speech and memory problems.
