Lockport police are investigating the death Saturday of a woman discovered outside the former Niagara County infirmary.

Police say the woman was unconscious when they arrived at the scene after getting a call at 6:23 a.m. that a person was down in front of the Davison Road building.

The woman, whose name is being withheld until her family is notified, was treated at the scene by Lockport fire and rescue personnel before being transported to Eastern Niagara Hospital.

She was pronounced dead at 10:51 a.m.

Lockport Chief of Detectives Richard L. Podgers said there were “no outward signs of violence," no indication as to the cause of death and that the incident is being investigated as an unattended death.

Podgers said an autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning.
