CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — 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.

WBZ-TV’s Diana Perez reports

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.
