Oh baby! Woman gives birth in Texas jail, guards unaware
By JAKE BLEIBERG
DALLAS (AP) - Officials say a woman in a Texas jail surprised corrections officers this month by giving birth to a child in her cell without their knowledge. Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jennifer Gabbert says the woman was alone in a Fort Worth jail cell on May 17 when she delivered the baby. Gabbert says the woman “did not immediately disclose the birth, but the baby was soon discovered by a corrections officer.” Both were taken to a hospital. She declined to identify the mother or say how she could have gone into labor without it coming to the guards’ attention.
