WELLINGTON, New Zealand – A sick New Hampshire woman who's been working on the South Pole for a year has successfully arrived on a plane in New Zealand for treatment.
Renee-Nicole Douceur tells The Associated Press in an email sent Monday morning that she has landed in Christchurch and is scheduled for tests on Tuesday.
Douceur is a Seabrook, N.H., resident who works as a manager for research station contractor Raytheon Polar Services Co. She asked for an emergency evacuation after having what doctors believed was a stroke in August. Doctors she contacted for a second opinion say a tumor may have caused her vision and speech problems.

A storm delayed a flight attempt Saturday, and officials rejected her earlier evacuation request because of bad weather.
