Girl, 13, sexually abused by her father for four-years dies during childbirth

A 13-year-old girl, Luana Ketlen who was sexually abused by her father for four years has died while giving birth to his child.
The incident was confirmed by Brazilian Police who said that Luana Ketlen died on December 11 after she was admitted to hospital for severe abdominal pains before it was discovered that she was actually pregnant.
She was reportedly induced to labour by doctors who helped her deliver a premature baby boy who miraculously survived. The mother who was diagnosed with acute anaemia, however, didn’t make it after suffering complications including cirrhosis of the liver, water on the lungs and low blood pressure
Police later issued an arrest warrant for her 36-year-old father, Tome Faba, who, they believed, began abusing his daughter when she was just nine.
On learning about Luana Ketlen death and the warrant he first went into hiding before being caught in the city of Coari a week later.
Mr. Tome appeared in court for the first time on December 27 and was charged with child abuse and manslaughter.
The Mail Online said Luana died while being airlifted to a specialist hospital in Manaus, the Amazonas state capital, some 225 miles away (363km).
At a press conference, Coari police chief, José Barradas said: ‘The teenager lived with her parents in a rural area outside the city.
‘She did not realise, until two months ago when she began to feel pains in her abdomen, that she was five months pregnant.
‘Luana claimed she was ordered to go fishing with her father and was allegedly raped by him while there.’
The Police chief Barradas also alleged that Faba threatened to kill his daughter if she reported what was happening.
Barradas said: ‘Members of the family tried to step in and protect the child by alerting social services.
‘They reported the abuse to police and a warrant was issued for Tome’s arrest but before it could be executed Luana’s health deteriorated and she died shortly after childbirth’.
