Orlando police are investigating the death of a woman found Sunday morning inside a vehicle at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies.

Hospital security told police officers that a female driver pulled up to the valet area shortly before 11:00 a.m. asking for medical help for a female passenger, according to department spokesman Lt. Diego Toruno.

Medical staff at the hospital checked on the passenger and determined she was dead, he said.

The driver, described by police as “argumentative” with hospital staff, “became combative and produced a knife,” Toruno said in a statement.
