The minor was admitted to the hospital for the second time on August 22. According to information provided by the Puebla State Attorney General’s Office (FGE), when Yaz was hospitalized, she presented battered child syndrome and had multiple injuries that resulted in her death. In addition, she had infections and sores due to lack of care after she underwent surgery in April for intestinal damage.
The case of the minor came to light thanks to the activist Frida Guerrera and caused outrage at the national level, after the hospital staff revealed that Yaz herself asked that they no longer treat her, because she preferred to die due to the constant mistreatment he received.
When the minor arrived at the Hospital de la Margarita, she already had a collapsed lung, so she was immediately intubated. From that moment on, his state of health was always serious.
It is worth mentioning that Alejandra Viridiana N., and Rafael N., Yaz’s parents, were arrested on August 27 by elements of the State Investigation Agency, and are in prison linked to a process for the crimes of family violence and abandonment of person .
