On Monday, an American, Susan Rose Cop, 47, a medical student, died after overdosing herself with pills in her apartment in San Pedro.
Police said that when they went to the apartment, they found a doctor trying to help Cop, and they also saw many bottles of pills near her. She was rushed to the San Pedro Poly Clinic, where doctors worked to save her, but the effort was in vain, as she died shortly after.
Police said that the woman had called her father in the United States and informed him that she was going to take the pills.
Fearing for life, her father immediately alerted a doctor in San Pedro to check on her, but when he went to her apartment, he saw her on the floor. She had already swallowed a number of pills.
Police said that no signs of violence were observed on her body, and no foul play is suspected. The death has been ruled as suicide, but the reason for the act is not yet known.
