Shirley Ladd, New Hampshire Woman, Dies While Hiking In Maine

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT DESERT ISLAND, Maine (AP) — Authorities have identified the person who died while hiking at Acadia National Park over the weekend as a New Hampshire woman attending the University of Maine.

Park rangers say 22-year-old Shirley Ladd of Barnstead, N.H., suffered multiple injuries late Saturday morning in a 60-foot fall while hiking the difficult Precipice Trail on Champlain Mountain.

More than three dozen emergency workers took several hours to rescue Ladd.

She was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor and pronounced dead just after 5 p.m.

She was hiking with one other person, who was not hurt.

A University of Maine spokeswoman says Ladd was a senior psychology major with a minor in business administration. She worked in the New Balance Student Recreation Center on campus, most recently as a student building manager.
