Sick NH engineer successfully leaves South Pole

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 (dee-SUHR') 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.
