(Scroll down for video) A little child has given birth to a nearly 6 pound baby, according to police reports and hospital officials in Mexico.
A nine-year-old girl has given birth to a baby of her own, authorities in Mexico revealed today.
The baby was born last week at Zoquipan Hospital, in Zapopan, in the western Mexican state of Jalisco.
It weighed 5.95 pounds.
The girl’s mother, identified only as Daphne, told local authorities: “The girl was a little over eight-years-old when she became pregnant. The baby’s father is a boy, who is 17-years-old, but we do not know where he is because he escaped.”
Jorge Villasenor from the state prosecutor’s office, said: “We are looking for the young man to listen to his story because she does not understand what has happened. This is a rape or child abuse case for sure.”
The two girls were discharged from the hospital during the weekend and are apparently doing well, but the hospital said it would have to do an extensive checkup due to the age of the new mother.
