The physician found, to their surprise and dismay, that their child, Lina Medina, was seven months pregnant. Just six weeks later, on May 14, 1939, Medina gave birth to a stable, six-pound newborn baby by surgery. She became the youngest girl known to have given birth at 5 years, seven months, and 21 days of age.
