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.
