The unnamed woman went to relieve herself when she accidentally gave birth to her son.

Selangor Fire Department Director, Norazam Khamis said that the 37-year-old woman was completely unaware that she was seven months pregnant.

“The fire and rescue services department took 10 minutes to break the toilet bowl and extricate the newborn,” he said.

Tragically the newborn was pronounced dead by the Ministry of Health.

The mum was immediately taken to hospital where she remains in stable condition.

Similarly, in 2017, a premature baby died after a mum gave birth in the toilet of a hospital.

Cerys Blackwell was just 23 weeks pregnant when she gave birth to Bobby James Blackwell at Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.

She only saw her baby for moments before he was taken away and declared dead.
