Elderly Burien woman wandering in roadway after threats of self-harm
According to the Burien Police Department, an elderly Burien woman was found wandering in the busy intersection of Ambaum Boulevard and S.W. 148th Street on evening of June 19th. Police arrived at the scene after multiple calls were made notifying police of a woman walking aimlessly along Ambaum Boulevard. The woman, who was reported missing early that evening, was taken into custody and transported to Highline Hospital as police believed her to be a danger to herself. The woman’s caregiver reported that she had snuck away from the caregiver’s home after threatening self-harm and stating that she would “rather die” than go to another hospital. The woman has been diagnosed with dementia as well as bipolar disorder. Despite the woman’s late night presence in the busy intersections, no accidents or injuries were reported as a result.
