Terminally ill English boy Archie is dead. He died at 12.15pm (local time) on Saturday, his mother Hollie Dance said in the afternoon outside the London hospital where Archie has been on life support for the past few months, according to the PA news agency.
The mother had announced on Friday that the equipment should be turned off on Saturday morning.
Archie has been in a coma since April. He suffered serious brain injuries in an accident at home in Southend-on-Sea. The treating doctors saw no chance of recovery. The parents had recently failed before the Court of Appeal in London and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg with applications to move Archie from the hospital to a hospice for his final hours.
