Unknown and unconscious
Posted on Friday, Dec 10, 2010
The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania released photos of an unidentified patient, unconscious for nearly four months, in hopes that someone will recognize her. The woman is estimated to be between 40 and 50 years old, white, with salt-and-pepper hair (grown in since surgeons cut it upon arrival) and no distinguishing marks other than three tattoos with three names: on her left upper arm, 'Bruce' is tattooed in a ribbon surrounded by a red heart; on her right upper arm, 'Dave' is tattooed above the outline of a heart; on her left calf is tattooed 'David.' Only the 'Bruce' tattoo appears to have been professionally done. She was wearing a green T-shirt, jean shorts and white sneakers. She was found in a park at the Tioga Station of the Market-Frankford Line (Tioga and Kensington) on the evening of Aug. 13, taken by Philadelphia fire/rescue to the ER at Aria Health’s Frankford campus (formerly Frankford Hospital), and then transferred to HUP shortly after midnight on Aug. 14.
