UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan — A woman was attacked with a hammer then set on fire and left for dead inside an Upper West Side apartment Tuesday, officials and police sources said. Officers responded just after 12 p.m. to a call of arson at an apartment building located at 825 Columbus Ave., police said.

When they arrived, officers found a 32-year-old woman with injuries consistent with being burned, police said. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

The article goes on to state the following:

Resident Bonnie Chapman told PIX11 News that the victim, while on fire, knocked on several apartment doors on the eighth floor of the building looking for help.

“She just kept saying, ‘Help, please, somebody help me, help me,'” Chapman said. “That’s all she kept saying.”

The victim fell to the ground as the flames intensified. Chapman said she then grabbed a sheet and extinguished the fire then called 911.
