A 10-year-old child in Colombia has given birth to a healthy baby boy via caesarean section in the Florencia region of the country. The girl, who cannot be named, became pregnant after she was allegedly raped by her own elder brother.

According to the local press, the sexual assault occurred in the home where the family lives at Puerto Leguizamo, Putumayo some months ago. The girl’s parents are insistent on protecting their son and have reportedly refused to report their son to the local police.

The director of the hospital where the 10-year-old gave birth, Camilo Diaz, told the press: “According to the information we have received from the police, the minor became pregnant after she was sexually abused by a family member, apparently her brother.”
