Archie Battersbee’s family prepare appeal bid to keep him on life support
The Metro says the family of Archie Battersbee are preparing to mount an appeal bid to keep him on life-support treatment after a judge ruled the youngster is dead.
Archie Battersbee, 12, was found unresponsive with a ligature around his neck at his home in Essex on April 7. He has not regained consciousness since.
His family believes he may have been taking part in a dangerous online challenge.
Mrs Justice Arbuthnot concluded doctors could lawfully stop providing care to the boy after considering evidence at the High Court.
