A Colombian girl, believed to be 10-years-old, has given birth to a healthy baby girl, making her one of the youngest mother’s in the world.

According to a video report by Univision's Primer Impacto the girl, who does not want to breast-feed her baby, had not visited a doctor throughout her pregnancy.

Legally, the father, who is unknown, could be arrested for rape but the tribe are given certain amounts of leniency to allow them to maintain their own culture.

"At a time when they should be playing with dolls they go to having to take care of a baby," he told local Columbian radio station RCN La Radio noticias.

"It's shocking."
