A Peruvian girl is the youngest mother on record after she gave birth at just five-years-old.

Lina Medina, from Ticrapo, a village in the Andes, had a baby boy via Caesarean section as her pelvis was too small for natural birth on May 14, 1939.

The harrowing story was unearthed via her medical records. Lina has declined cash offers to tell her story, despite being asked multiple times by newspaper reporters.

At the time, the young girl complained of stomach pains to her mother, Victoria Losea, a housewife, and doctors assumed she had a tumour.

It came to light that she was in fact seven-months-pregnant.

Her baby was born a healthy 6lbs and was named Gerardo after the doctor that delivered him.

Medics discovered Lina became pregnant due to a condition called precocious puberty, when a child’s body hits puberty prematurely.

Her breasts were nearly fully developed by the age of four and she started having periods aged three, according to her mother.

The father of Gerardo remains unknown although Lina’s own father, Tiburelo Medina, a silversmith, was arrested after the birth on suspicion of raping her. He was later released due to a lack of evidence.

Studies show that young victims of sexual abuse are more likely to experience precocious puberty.

Lina – who was impregnated aged four – was unable to give “precise responses” when asked about the baby’s father and may not have known due to her young age, claim medics.

Her father has strongly denied that he raped his daughter. Lina’s cousin was also suspected of raping her but due to a lack of evidence, the police could not charge him.

Two years after Gerardo was born Lina was assessed by child specialist Paul Koask, from Columbia University, who described her intelligence was above average and her baby as “perfectly normal”.

He wrote: “She thinks of the child as a baby brother and so does the rest of the family.”
