There are always some kinds of records which are so strange that you can not imagine, and such cases are outside the borders of rational thinking. The youngest mothers are one of these unbelievable cases. Surprisingly, a five year old girl is not matured enough to give birth to a child. The absence of puberty, menstrual cycle, proper development of the uterus makes it impossible, but:

To be specific, Lina Medina's parents thought their 5-year-old daughter had a huge abdominal tumor and when her father carried her to a hospital. However, it turned out that she was pregnant, and the baby weighed 2.7 kg. That was really a feat!
