A 13-year-old girl in Guatemala has given birth to triplets after being raped by a man who was selling sweets in the street.
Francisca Lopez Perez, from the town of Momostenango, did not even realise she was pregnant until her stomach began to swell.
The triplets each weighed only about 2.2 lbs (1 kg) and the two oldest were rushed to the emergency ward of a local hospital where they later died, Daily Mail reports.
Miss Lopez Perez said she had become pregnant after she had been raped by a ‘candy seller’ who she was not able to identify.
The young mum is struggling to care for her surviving baby in extreme poverty, living with her mother and seven brothers in a house made of boards.
She is expected to constantly take the baby boy to hospital as he is so small that he regularly needs oxygen.
