A nine-year-old girl in Mexico has given birth. Hospital authorities in the state of Jalisco confirmed the girl gave birth to a baby boy less than two weeks ago. The boy weighed five-and-a-half pounds. Doctors say both the mother and child are in good health. Both are in the care of the girl's grandmother, but hospital staff say because of her age, the girl will need to have extensive follow-up visits. Local media report the alleged father, a 17-year-old, fled the area after the baby was born. The state's attorney general's office is investigating whether the case should be legally considered child sex abuse or rape.
