Los Angeles police are investigating another possible patient dumping on L.A.'s Skid Row.

Witnesses say a man in his 70s, wearing a white T-shirt and pajama bottoms, was dropped off Wednesday at a homeless mission by a taxi.

The man, Moses Davis, had been a patient at Downy Regional Medical Center — 13 miles away from Skid Row.

Hospital officials say they paid for Davis' cab fare, but that he was not a victim of patient dumping.
