(ANSA) – LONDON, AUGUST 05 – The process for the detachment of the 12-year-old Englishman Archie Battersbee from the machines that keep him alive since 7 April, after a domestic accident that reduced him to a vegetative state and a condition defined by the doctors of “highly probable” brain cell death is expected in the next few hours at the Royal London Hospital in White Chapel, in the east of the British capital. This was announced by the media following the device with which the High Court of London has just rejected the last request made by the parents to at least obtain the transfer of the child to a hospice near his home, in Essex, and grant him – in words of mother Hollie – a “more dignified and peaceful death”.

Epilogue that the judge in charge of ruling denied, however, accepting once again the contrary opinion of the doctors: according to which any transshipment – even short – would have entailed “significant risks” of an uncontrolled death of Archie, given his conditions “not stable “, and it would not have been” in his best interest “. In theory, however, parents can still try the path of requesting a further appeal on this specific point. (HANDLE).
