ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A naked woman at the Orlando International Airport has been taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.

Airport spokeswoman Carolyn Fennell told the Orlando Sentinel the unidentified woman arrived in a tax Friday afternoon. Witnesses immediately called police.

Orlando police Lt. Gary Hayes says the woman took off her clothes at the entrance to a parking garage. He says “she said something about Jesus making her do it.”

Officers took the woman to Florida Hospital East for a psychiatric observation under the state’s Baker Act.

Her name has not been released because of health-privacy laws.
