Just when you think the news could not get any more disgusting come along something else that absolutely turns your stomach. In Tuesday’s issue of the Star there is a story about a 10 year old girl who gave birth and the child died three days later.
Now the weird thing about it all is that the story claimed no one knew she was pregnant until she was in the seventh month. They only discovered this when she fainted in class and was rushed to the hospital, it was then the discovery was made.
Now what I want to ask is this, how is it possible that she could be pregnant for all of seven months without so visible signs.
How closely was she being monitored by her mother that morning sickness, missed periods and all that passed her by.
When exactly did she get involved with a 30-odd year old man that the mother missed out on all the dialogues and stuff like that.
Of course children can keep secrets but a child that young should have been under tighter control.
The whole Mountainside community in St Elizabeth should bear the shame of this deed as someone must have noticed some inappropriate behavior. Check out some of the story:
The child's father said he is distraught about the incident because he was not given custody of his daughter when he attempted to take her into his care.
"I filed for custody for my daughter but I did not get her and she was given to her mother," said the man.
He also said he does not get to see his daughter because he is a man who does not tolerate foolishness.
A senior cop attached to the Black River Police Station told THE STAR that the matter was being investigated; however, the officer was tight-lipped about the case.
The child's father told THE STAR that the child delivered the baby in December and the baby died three weeks later. The angry father said that he was not even told about the baby's death until two weeks after.
According to the father, his daughter fainted at school and was rushed to the hospital when it was revealed that the child was seven months pregnant.
"How could she be seven months pregnant and no one knew, that makes no sense," said the confused father.
The child's father is begging that the culprit be brought to justice as no one in his right mind would have sex with a 10-year-old girl.
