A SEVEN-year-old “rape victim” who begged doctors to let her die has passed away after months in hospital.
Local officials announced that the girl, named only as Yatziri, tragically died in the Hospital de Las Margaritas in Puebla, Mexico, on Monday.
The seven-year-old was being treated in ICU after being allegedly severely beaten in August.
Her injuries were allegedly caused by YEARS of abuse
Local media said that she died of multi-organ failure although no further details were given.
A neighbour had taken the girl to hospital where she was diagnosed with internal bleeding, signs of rape, back burns and a collapsed lung.
Upon arrival, the girl told doctors “I want to die, don’t heal me anymore”, adding “I don’t want to go back to my parents so they can keep hitting me”.
Her father, identified as Rafael, and mother, named as Alejandra, have both been detained and are being investigated for child abuse.
The police are tracking down the victim’s paternal uncle, who has not been named, for allegedly raping the young girl on repeated occasions.
Yatziri had a three-year-old sister named Mitzy who was believed to have died of accidental asphyxiation in her sleep in June this year.
Cops have reopened the case into Mitzy’s death in the wake of her sibling’s passing.
Yatziri had previously been admitted to hospital with signs of trauma blows and serious injuries all over her body dating back to 2019. Yet, no action was taken against her parents.
In August, she was admitted with burns to her buttocks that had destroyed part of the muscle.
