HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Officials are investigating after a baby died after being rushed to Fire Station 77 Sunday morning.

Firefighters received a call around 1:30 a.m. advising them to wake up because a baby was on the way to the station.

When firefighters came out, a van was pulling up beeping the horn while a woman with a baby was screaming and crying.

Officials say they tried to work on the baby, who was very pale and in bad shape, for a minute before heading to the hospital.

The parents followed firefighters to the hospital, where the baby was pronounced dead.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the baby's death.
