A 12-YEAR girl has given birth to a baby boy after going into labour at her landfill site home in Ukraine.
The unnamed girl was rushed to hospital “screaming with pain” after a guard spotted her amid the rubbish.
Now her parents want her to raise the child in their shack at the landfill in Rivne – but hospital admin staff have reportedly refused to allow that.
According to local reports, the girl did not understand what was happening when contractions struck.
She was taken to Rivne Maternity Hospital where doctors helped her to deliver her son.
The labour was “difficult and lasted ten hours”, medics said.

Doctor Olena Sadova told local media: “A child gave birth to a child. I’m still in a deep shock when thinking about that.

The hospital staff say the actual delivery passed without complications.
Galina Kovaleva, the head deputy of the hospital said: “The girl worries about the newborn. She constantly comes to the neonatal intensive care unite to check on the boy.
“She wants to feed him but the newborn has a birth defect and cannot be breastfed.”
Victoria Enikeeva, the hospital’s head doctor, said the matter had been reported to police and social services.
She said: “The girl lives at the city landfill. We cannot discharge her and the baby and let them go there. We reported the situation to the police and social services.”
Medics say they have to keep an eye on the relatives, who have already tried to take the new mum and her son from the hospital without permission.
It is understood the relatives do not see any obstacles for the newborn to live at the landfill, which they treat as their home.
The newborn’s 27-year-old grandmother said: “Just give me them both back. I want them to go home with me.”
The large Roma family lives in filthy shacks made from rubbish found at the landfill.
The community lives in horrific insanitary conditions and makes money by scavenging for scrap metal and selling it.
The mother’s relative Volodymyr Pap said to local media: “She and her baby should live with us – her family and relatives.
“The father of the baby is 20. He is living in Zakarpatia region now. He is going to reunite with us when it’s possible.”
Rivne Regional Police Department spokesman, Anton Kruk, said: “Police opened a criminal case for sexual intercourse with a person under 16 [the age of sexual consent in Ukraine is 16]. We are trying to trace the father’s whereabouts at the moment.
“He faces up to eight years in prison if found guilty.”
Social services are now monitoring the Roma community and the girl’s living conditions.
