10-year-old girl gives birth

You read that right. A 10-year-old Colombian girl has gave birth to a little girl.

Doctors delivered the baby by caesarean section after the girl, a member of the indigenous Wayuu tribe, arrived at a hospital in Manaure in floods of tears.

The girl, who has not been named, was 39 weeks pregnant when she appeared at the hospital in pain from contractions and bleeding. It was the first time doctors had seen the girl during her pregnancy.
