Few details have emerged from the discovery of a dead woman inside a Port Authority Bus Terminal bathroom on Saturday afternoon.

The Port Authority reported that the woman was located at about 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 16 inside a bus parking lot trailer bathroom for New Jersey Transit, located on the southwest corner of the facility off West 40th Street and 10th Avenue.

FDNY sources confirmed that EMS responded at that time to the terminal regarding a 911 call for a person in cardiac arrest.

EMS administered CPR but the person could not be saved, pronouncing her dead at the scene. Her identity has not yet been released.

Port Authority officials refused to comment Sunday on the cause of woman’s death, stating only that a police investigation remains ongoing.
