pregnant-fireKENT, WA — Police say a suicidal pregnant woman set herself on fire Sunday evening, then gave birth to a baby boy who died “almost immediately” at the hospital

According to reports, police responded to a call about a suicidal woman who had “caught herself on fire.”

When they got to the scene they found the 34-year-old woman very late into her pregnancy suffering from significant burns.

The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition and gave birth to a baby boy. A little over two hours later, the baby died.

According to a King County Medical Examiner’s Office report, the boy died from prenatal asphyxia due to maternal thermal burns.

Despite hiss manner of death was listed as homicide, Kent police have not yet charged the woman with a crime.

“It is early on the investigation, and it is not quite clear if any charges will be brought against the woman,” said police spokeswoman Melanie Robinson.
