Posted: Updated:
A Texoma mother gave birth in a gas station bathroom.  She told officials she didn’t even realize she was pregnant. 

Wichita Falls Police said the 23-year-old was getting gas at the Murphy’s on Archer City Highway when she started feeling sick.  She went to the bathroom and gave birth while on the toilet.  Then she called.

The baby was initially found alive, but was taken to Cook’s where the baby passed away.  The baby was thought to be 28-weeks-old.

Police don’t believe anything criminal took place, but are still investigating to make sure charges shouldn’t be filed.
