In April of 1939, Lina’s mother took her to hospital to see Dr Gérado Lozada for help, where it was soon discovered she was seven months pregnant.
Miraculously, Lina went on to deliver a healthy son via Caesarean section mere weeks later on 14 May aged five years, seven months, and 21 days.
Medicine knows many cases when children gave birth to children. How is this possible? 1 in 10,000 children mature prematurely and reach puberty at an early age. However, it affects girls more often than boys. Such a case was the shocking story of Lina Medina from southwestern Peru. The girl became pregnant at the age of four and gave birth to a son at the age of five. To this day it is not known who the father of the child was. Journalists offered the woman huge amounts of money to reveal this secret.
Lina Medina gave birth to a child at the age of five. To this day it is not known who the father
Lina Medina was born in 1933 in Peru, one of nine siblings. The girl’s father, Tiburcio Medina, was concerned that his daughter’s belly had become very enlarged and took her to a local shaman. At first it was suspected that it was related to a tumor growing in the baby’s body, but it quickly turned out that Lina was pregnant. On May 14, 1939, Lina Medina gave birth to a son. Due to her tiny body, the delivery was by caesarean section performed by Dr. Gerardo Lozada, Dr. Rolando Colareta and Dr. Busalleu. The boy was named after the doctor who delivered the baby – Gerardo. At birth he weighed 2.7 kilograms. Who was his father? At first, the girl’s father and brothers were suspected. Tiburcio Medina was even arrested, but the case was closed due to lack of evidence. He vehemently denied raping his daughter.
The tiktoker surprised the boy with a metamorphosis. From a vampire to a princess
Later media reports suggested that the girl had been raped by an unknown perpetrator during a festival held in her village. It has never been proven who committed this heinous act. According to the website allthatsinteresting.com, recent research has shown that girls who were sexually harassed at a young age may reach puberty faster than their peers. This mystery remains unsolved to this day. The shocking story immediately attracted media attention, but none of the family members gave an interview to the press. The woman is 90 years old today. The media have repeatedly tried to convince her to confess, but she consistently refuses.
The son of the youngest mother in the history of medicine did not live to a ripe old age. He died young.
Lina Medina’s son did not know for a long time that the girl was his mother. He grew up with her nine siblings and was convinced that he was her brother. The man died at the age of 40. He suffered from a rare bone marrow disease. Lina Medina became a mother again as an adult. The woman started a relationship with an employee of the clinic, where she found a job as a secretary.
