The New Jersey woman who was injured in a fall while hiking on Cadillac Mountain earlier this week has died. Bette Powell, 60, of Haddenfield, N.J., died Thursday at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, said Kevin Cochary, a park official.
Powell and her husband, Dennis Powell, were visiting the park as part of their 40th anniversary celebration and were hiking on the South Ridge Trail when the accident occurred early Wednesday afternoon.
According to Cochary, Powell was coming down a 10-foot boulder using iron rungs when she lost her balance and fell backward, striking her head on a rock
