Nine-year-old in China gives birth
This is downright bizarre!
A nine-year-old girl has reportedly given birth to a healthy baby boy at a hospital in Changchun, which lies in China’s northeastern province of Jilin.
The unnamed schoolgirl was brought to the hospital when she was eight and a half months pregnant, and gave birth via Caesarean section.
Circumstances surrounding the girl’s pregnancy were unknown, but her parents have sought legal assistance.
Police are investigating, and may press charges if they discover who the father is. In Jilin province, sex with a minor under the age of 14 is considered rape.
The youngest reported mother in the world is five-year-old Lina Medina of Peru, who gave birth to a 6lb baby boy in 1939.
