Seven-year-old rape victim who pleaded with doctors to let her die while being treated for injuries believed to have been caused by years of abuse by her parents and uncle died after months in intensive care.

Local authorities have announced that 7-year-old Yatziri tragically died in Las Margaritas hospital in the Mexican state of Puebla on December 28.

The girl was being treated in intensive care after being severely beaten on August 21.

Local authorities have announced that 7-year-old Yatziri tragically died in Las Margaritas hospital in the Mexican state of Puebla on December 28.

Yatziri died of multi-organ failure, but no further information was given, according to local media.

A neighbor had taken the young girl to hospital where she was diagnosed with internal bleeding, signs of rape, burns to her back and a collapsed lung.

When she arrived, the girl reportedly told the doctors: “I want to die, don’t cure me anymore”, adding “I don’t want to go back to my parents so that they can continue to beat me”.

Her father, identified as Rafael, and her mother, named Alejandra Viridiana, have both been detained and are under investigation for abusing their daughter.

Police are looking for the victim’s paternal uncle, who has not been named, for allegedly raping the girl on several occasions, but he is still at large.

Yatziri had a three-year-old sister named Mitzy who reportedly died of accidental asphyxiation in her sleep in June this year, and police have reopened the case following her brother’s death.

Yatziri had previously been admitted to hospital with signs of severe trauma and injury all over her body dating back to 2019, as well as February, May and August 2020, but no action was taken against the parents.

The investigation is continuing.
