MAN FALLS TO HIS DEATH ON THE PRECIPICE

1997 - ACADIA NATIONAL PARK;
The body of a 37 year  old Old Town man was located Monday afternoon in Acadia National Park.
Michael Domino, who had moved with his wife and 6 year old daughter from the Boca Raton, Fla. area last Oct., apparently fell Sunday afternoon while hiking near the East Face Trail on one of the most treacherous mountains in the park.  Icy paths now cover many of the rock faces and trails in Acadia National Park.
According to park spokeswoman Wanda Mozan, a helicopter with infrared sensors from the 112th Army National Guard flew over Champlain and other nearby mountains during the night, hoping to detect Domino's location.
Very early Monday morning the helicopter returned, along with a plane from the Maine Warden Service.  The search by air and land continued throughout the morning.  The body was found at about 12;30 PM.  Park Officials and volunteer's brought Domino's body down from the mountain side on a stretcher.
