ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - A young woman from Florida had to be rescued from a mountain at Acadia National Park because she was suffering from hypothermia and other medical issues.

Supervisory Park Ranger Richard Rechholtz says the 19-year-old woman was not properly dressed for the temperatures when the 911 call came in at about 7:30 a.m. yesterday.

 The woman's name was not made public. The rescue efforts were hampered by deep snow and high winds. The woman and a male companion were flown to a Bar Harbor hospital.
