1997 - ACADIA NATIONAL PARK;
The body of a 37 year old Old Town man was located Monday afternoon in Acadia National Park.
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.
