baby A 10-year-old girl has been delivered of a
healthy baby in Brazil hours after she
complained of stomach ache at school.
The girl, who was rushed to the hospital by
teachers, turned out to be in her late stages
of labour – she was seven months pregnant.
She was said to have given birth normally,
and both mother and newborn are doing fine.
According to Irish Mirror, the girl told the
police that her 40-year-old ex-stepfather
abused her.
The girl’s mother said 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 from
October last year.
“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 had threatened
to kill her mother and brother if she
attempted to make the abuse public.
The man has been charged with rape of a
child and illegal possession of firearms.
