In Mexico, a 10-year-old girl has delivered a child by caesarian section. The baby was delivered prematurely after a pregnancy lasting 31 weeks.

The baby weighed just 3.3 pounds at birth and is being treated for pneumonia in the intensive care unit.

The delivery was pretty complicated and difficult as the young mother suffered seizures during the delivery.

The hospital doctors have said that the baby is showing improvement. The mother has recovered well and has been discharged from the hospital. She visits the hospital everyday to breast-feed her child.

Meanwhile, investigations are on to ascertain the true cause of her pregnancy. Experts are not ruling out rape, of course things will be clear once the investigations are through.
