Police in St Lucia are investigating reports that an 11-year-old grade six student is five months pregnant.
The director of the Human Services Department, Elizabeth Lewis, has confirmed that the matter involving the child from the south east coast of the island is being handled by her unit.
“At this point I prefer not to say much, just to say that we are aware of the case and we are dealing with it. We don’t want to say too much at this time,” she said.
The child had been complaining of feeling unwell and tests done at the hospital confirmed her pregnancy.
