WHY IS THERE A HELICOPTER AT THE BAR HARBOR BALL FIELD?

Nearly once a day throughout the Summer and Fall a lifeflight helicopter is called to the island - usually because someone has had a bad fall on a mountain in Acadia National Park or had a bad bike accident.  The Bar Harbor ball fields, the one closest to Main Street, is the landing zone for the helicopter.
If you are in downtown Bar Harbor and hear or see a low flying helicopter passing overhead, it most likely is Lifeflight either heading to the Ball fields or leaving the Ball Fields.
