PER CURIAM

In this mental commitment case, appellant contends that the evidence in the record is insufficient to establish that he is presently a danger to himself or others because of a mental disorder. ORS 426.130. The state concedes that the evidence does not establish the grounds for the order of commitment that was entered in this case. On de novo review, we agree and accept the concession.

Reversed.
