An 11-year-old girl has given birth to a boy fathered by her 14-year-old brother, at Virgen de la Arrixaca hospital in the city of Murcia in south eastern Spain on Friday after she was admitted with ‘stomach pains’.
The identity of the father was found as the older sibling of the girl, whose mother is a Bolivian immigrant. The brother was 13 when his sister fell pregnant and will not face any criminal proceedings under Spanish law because he is below the age of criminal responsibility.
Their parents claim they were not aware of the pregnancy and that they went to hospital believing she had a serious intestinal problem.
Both mother and baby are said to be ‘doing well’ at Virgen de la Arrixaca Hospital in Murcia. An investigation is still ongoing as their are not reports that both siblings developed illicit relationship.
A DNA tests will now take place to confirm the family claims about who the baby’s father is. Regional Health authority described the case as ‘absolutely exceptional’.
