9-Year-Old Gives Birth in Mexico; Cops Hunt 17-Year-Old Dad

A nine-year-old girl gave birth to a baby in Mexico

A 9-year-old girl in Mexico has given birth to a healthy daughter of her own. The father, a 17-year-old boy currently on the run, is being tracked down by police on suspicion of child sexual abuse or rape.

The girl, known only by Dafne, gave birth January 27 in Zoquipan Hospital, in the Zapopan area of Mexico’s Jalisco state. The baby was 5.95 pounds. Both mother and daughter were released from the hospital over the weekend.

Police say they’re trying to get the father’s story because Dafne is “confused.” Spokespeople from the hospital said that even though mother and daughter are healthy, they’ll have to perform extensive followup research given the circumstances.

While this case is certainly shocking, Dafne is not the youngest mother ever. A girl named Lina Medina in Peru got pregnant when she was only 5 years old in the 1930s (pictured above), and there are several other cases of girls giving birth at 7 and 8 years old.
