Medically confirmed as the youngest woman in history to give birth; she was just five years and seven months old at the time of the birth.
After her family noticed her stomach bulging, they took her to a doctor believing that it was a tumor, but tests showed the girl was pregnant.
Medical tests revealed Lina was ovulating from 8 months of age, due to a developmental disorder, but the family did not allow many more tests to be performed on her or her child.
Her son, Gerardo, a healthy boy, was delivered via Caesarian section. He was raised as Lina's younger brother until he was told the truth at age 10. She later married Raul Jurado.
Englishwoman Louise Brown had her own birth-related claim to fame several decades later as the world's first baby fertilized in vitro.
