A 9-year-old girl in Mexico has reportedly given birth.
The girl, identified as "Dafne" by The Telegraph, reportedly delivered a 5.7 pound baby by cesarean section on Jan. 27 in Zoquipan Hospital in Jalisco, an area in western Mexico.
The girl was 8 years old when she became pregnant. "This is a rape or child sex abuse case," Corona added, according to the Agence France-Presse. The age of sexual consent in Mexico is 12,according to UNICEF.
"The father is a boy who is 17, but we have not found him, since he ran away," the mother of the girl told officials, according to the AFP.
“Due to her young age,we don’t know if she is being entirely truthful,” Lino Ginzalez Corona, spokesperson at Jalisco State Prosecutor’s Office, said in a press conference, ABC reports.
The new mother is one of 11 children, according to ABC, and her parents were unable to watch her while they worked.
There have been only a handful of recent reported births among children this young, including a 10-year-old Colombian girl who gave birth last year, and a 9-year-old Chinese girl who gave birth to a healthy baby boy in 2010.

Within the last year or so my father has been losing his sight due to diabetes, and recently it had begun to give him headaches. So he visited his doctor and had to under go emergency laser eye surgery friday morning. The sugery was on the eye he can see most out of, the other eye being almost completely blind already. After the sugery he had to have his eye patched leaving him unable to see. Being a huge 49er fan he then asked the doctor if he would be able to see sundays game (its been 18 years since he's seen his favorite team play in the superbowl) but the doctor wasn't able to answer him. The truth was the doctor was not sure if the surgery would leave his sight at the same level it was or perhaps worse. But yesterday my mom took the patch off of my fathers eye to find that he WOULD be able to see todays game, although he is still recovering and his sight is blurry. We know that something is better than nothing. So today as your watching the superbowl be appreciative to see what you do, and enjoy with good company be it family or friends.
Much love, - [G]
