LILIHA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating the death of a woman, believed to be in her 30s, who was dropped off at Hawaii Medical Center East on Liliha Street Sunday.

Investigators say an unidentified male walked into the emergency room, asked for a wheelchair, and stated that a female at the entrance needed help. When the hospital staff went to check on her, she was found unresponsive and was later pronounced dead.

Police say the man who apparently brought the woman to the hospital left without providing any information concerning her.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner's office will work to identify the woman and conduct an autopsy to determine her exact cause of death.
