Is this 'died self' or 'self hours ago'? Or, is this just a typo which is supposed to be something else?

Former first lady Betty Ford has died at the age of 93. A family member says Ford died self hours ago, that her death was peaceful and family members were by her bedside.

    I suspect it is a typo. The text contains this warning:

    "THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED."

    Hi, Cagey.

    My brief initial scan gave me an impression that it was 'several' but then the next careful reading revealed it was actually spelt 'self.' Maybe the transcriber typed 'several' down as 'self' mistakenly.

    Thanks, Cagey.
