12-Year-Old Gives Birth While on School Field Trip
Posted on April 7th, 2011 in Latest | 5 Comments » |
The 12-year-old Dutch girl from Groningen was not aware that she was pregnant and started complaining of stomach pains while she was out on a field trip.
Teachers realized the girl was in labor and called emergency services. According to The Telegraph reports: “When ambulance staff arrived, they saw the girl was on the point of giving birth and rushed her to a nearby building where she had her baby.” Miraculously, the 12-year-old girl gave birth to a healthy baby girl. She was then taken to the hospital for treatment but has refused to name the father when questioned by the police.
Dutch police said in a statement yesterday: “The girl got pregnant when she was 11, which in itself means there has been a criminal offense. Article 244 of the Penal Code, sex with a minor under 12, is punishable. In addition, there are now [circumstances] reported by the Child Protection Board. Taking these two circumstances, the police is now investigating who the father [of this baby] is.”
The girl will be sent to a foster care home once she is released from the hospital.
