By The Associated Press

CONCORD, New Hampshire (AP) ' An American woman who became ill while working at the South Pole has been evacuated by plane to New Zealand for medical 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, New Hampshire, resident who has worked for the past year 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.
