A 10-year-old girl complained of stomach ache in school and was rushed to the hospital, only for her to give birth to a very healthy baby few hours later on Tuesday, July 7, 2015.
Reports say the girl from Brazil was actually in her late stages of labour as she was seven months pregnant after her 40-year-old step-father raped her.
The young girl had her baby through the normal process and is doing just fine as well as her new born.
According to Mirror UK, the girl’s mother told the officials that she had no idea her daughter was pregnant, but said she noticed that the little one started to struggle at school and became more introverted since October 2014.
Police Chief Capt. Castro in Belo Horizonte, south-east Brazil said, “The mother alleges that she, along with other family members, hadn’t noticed, taking into consideration the child’s small frame.”
The girl said the ex-stepfather threatened to kill her mother and brother if she ever said a word of the affair to anyone.
The man was later arrested and charged with rape of a child and illegal possession of firearms.
