Officers were called to the back of a school in the 1600-block of Hastings Drive, just north of Fanshawe Park Road East, where they found a woman shortly after 8 a.m. on Saturday, police said. Though police didn’t specify the name of the school, Jack Chambers public school is the only one in that area.

Paramedics rushed the woman to hospital where she was later pronounced dead, police said.

The police call came amid extreme weather conditions caused by a blizzard that pushed temperatures to negative double digits and wreaked havoc around London area roads and highways, triggering collisions and stranding pre-Christmas travelers.

Police on Wednesday said the death was not suspicious and didn’t release the identity of the woman.

“No further identifying information is being released at this time,” police said.
