A form four student gave birth to a baby girl at the sick bay of her school after complaining of stomach pains, reported Harian Metro.

The 16-year-old was assisted by her teacher and a nurse when she delivered the 3.1kg baby at 12.30pm last Wednesday.

The girl who was in her class, had asked for her teacher's permission to go to the sick bay, complaining of stomach ache. The nurse found out that she was actually in labour.

The school later contacted the girl's parents after she gave birth.

They took the girl to the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital in Kuantan.

A police report was lodged by the hospital on Friday as the student was underage and was not married.

Meanwhile, Kemaman OCPD Supt Mohd Said Ibrahim said an 18-year-old teenager, believed to be the girl's boyfriend, was detained to facilitate in investigations under Section 376 for rape.

Initial investigations revealed that the student and her boyfriend have had sex five times since she was 14.
