The child has been admitted to the hospital numerous times but no actions were taken by the authorities.
Trigger Warning: Child abuse
It is painful and unbelievable but many-a-time children suffer at the hands of the people who are supposed to love and care for them. This incident is such a kind. A 7-year-old pleaded the doctors to let her suffer the agony of her injuries instead healing her. The little girl thought it was safer for her to die than to be left in the hands of her abusive parents.
Yaz was admitted to the Hospital de Las Margaritas situated in the state of Puebla in east-central Mexico on 21 August 2020 after she suffered severe injuries as a result of being beaten up by her parents. The little girl asked the doctors treating her to stop it all as she did not have the desire to live. "I want to die, don't heal me anymore. I don't want to go back to my parents so they can keep hitting me," said the young girl, according to the Daily Mail.

Yaz was taken to the medical facility by her compassionate neighbor. On checking her injuries, the doctors found the girl's body covered with bruises. She also had internal bleeding that suggested signs of rape. Besides, the young girl was left with collapsed lungs and cigarette burns.
However, this was not the first time. The helpless girl had to go through similar experiences in the past. In 2019, she was admitted with severe injuries all over her body. She also showed signs of blunt trauma at the time.
Please, don´t stop following and spreading the news about the girl's case, in Mexico, the Puebla state government wants to return the girl to the family of her abusers, and the mexican media don´t care @MBarbosaMX— Martha Escobar Garza (@garza_escobar) September 16, 2020
The innocent child was put in a similar situation several times even in 2020. Yaz was admitted to the hospital in February, May, and August of 2020 but like every other time, no actions were taken against her parents.
In the recent events, the girl was found with burns so severe that doctors had to do skin grafting on the little child due to the damaging of a part of her muscle. She had to undergo surgery in April due to intestinal damage and in February, she was admitted for cuts on her legs.
According to The Sun, Rafael N, the father pointed fingers at her mother, Alejandra N., for abusing the kid.

However, after months of undergoing this trauma, the kid is all set to be taken into the municipal Development of Family Integrity (DIF) program.
The action came into play after the intervention of activist Frida Guerrera. Guerra, who believes that the girl's mother is a victim of abuse brought the case to Mayor Claudia Rivera Vivanco. As a result, Yaz was freed from her dreadful situation. According to the Daily Mail, the case of Yaz's little sister's death has also been reopened. She was previously believed to have died of asphyxiation.
The prosecution stated that the child's mother was responsible for the trauma suffered by the child. Following this claim, Yaz's father requested full custody of the girl. However, it was denied.
Later, Guerrera stated that she initially believed the girl's mother was the sole abuser based on the testimonies of Rafael and his current partner - previously a neighbor of Alejandra's.
But eventually she found that the girl lived with her father since July 2019. Additionally, the girl had no ties with her mother at the time, despite which she had injuries. Further, Alejandra was only informed of the younger one's death.
According to the Attorney General of the State Puebla, both the parents were detained on 3 September, 2020 after being charged with family violence and child abandonment. Meanwhile, the authorities are investigating the rape accusations aganist the child's uncle.
Guerrera responded to the recent events and criticised the authorities for its late intervention. "If the Puebla authorities had done their job since January, which was the first moment that there were indications that the girl had suffered sexual violence, the girl would not be in the hospital now, and Mitzi (her little sister) would not be dead." She added, "Of course there is institutional responsibility in this."
