She walked into one of the buildings on the hospital campus carrying a large bag full of flammable material, pouring the contents over herself before setting herself alight. Medical staff failed to resuscitate the woman and a doctor on the scene pronounced her dead. Police had yet to identify the woman and were investigating the circumstances of the incident.
