Family vows to appeal in 12-year-old Archie life-support treatment fight


The mother of a 12-year-old boy who was at the centre of a life-support treatment fight says relatives aim to appeal after a High Court judge ruled that the youngster was dead. Doctors treating Archie Battersbee at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London, thought that the youngster was 'brain-stem dead'. They said life-support treatment should end and Archie should be disconnected from a ventilator.
