Before Landau, Presiding Judge, and Schuman, Judge, and Ortega, Judge.

PER CURIAM

PER CURIAM

This is a civil commitment case in which the trial court ordered appellant committed on the ground that, because of a mental disorder, she is dangerous to herself.  ORS 426.005(1)(d).  On appeal, she contends that the record lacks clear and convincing evidence to support the order of commitment.  The state concedes the insufficiency of the evidence.  On de novo review, State v. O'Neill, 274 Or 59, 61, 545 P2d 97 (1976), we agree. 

Reversed.
