At age of 10, most girls are home playing with barbie and playing dress up.
The unnamed girl from Manaure, a town in the Colombian Department of La Guajira, arrived at the hospital in tears and “enormous pain” from the contractions, according to Univision’s Primer Impacto. She reportedly delivered her daughter, who weighed 5 pounds, by cesarean section.
“The baby’s head needs to come through a bony outlet. But in a young girl, the pelvis may not be ready or big enough to deliver a baby,” said Dr. Kimberly Gecsi, an OB/GYN at UH Case Medical Center in Cleveland.
Its sad a young girl who can barely watch after herself, is now a mother, what baffled me the most is the new mom is a member of the Wayuu people, an indigenous tribe in northern Colombia.
The age of the father is unknown, but police can’t press charges because the tribe has its own jurisdiction, according to local reports.
I’m disgusted at the man who laid down with this child. Leave a comment and let us know what you think. Should the Colombian government arrest the person who is responsible for impregnating this 10 year old?
