Wichita Falls police say a woman who did not even know she was pregnant gave birth in a gas station restroom Thursday night and the baby did not survive.

Police and first responders were dispatched to the Murphy's Gas Station on Archer City Highway around 9 Thursday night.

They say a 23-year-old woman was getting gas when she started feeling sick and went into the bathroom. Officers say the woman delivered the baby and yelled for help.

When first responders arrived the infant was breathing and was taken to the United Regional emergency room and then rushed to Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth, where it was pronounced dead around 4 a.m.
