ST. GEORGE -- A woman committed suicide shortly after telling emergency personnel she wanted her organs harvested.
The Spectrum of St. George reports the 57-year-old woman made a call Friday morning to 911 to say she wanted to be an organ donor.
St. George Police spokesman Capt. James Van Fleet tells the newspaper she then parked outside the emergency room at the Dixie Regional Medical Center, left her vehicle and shot herself in the head around noon.
Doctors and nurses in the emergency room heard the gunfire and ran outside. They tried to revive her but were unsuccessful.
Police are informing family members and did not release the woman's name Friday afternoon.
