A London judge has ruled the terminally-ill baby will be moved from a hospital to hospice. Charlie’s parents fought to take him to the U.S. for experimental treatment but ended their months-long legal battle this week.
LONDON — Charlie Gard, a terminally ill British baby at the center of a high-profile legal battle to take him to the United States for treatment, has died. He was 11 months old.
Charlie’s mother, Connie Yates, confirmed his death to British media: “Our beautiful little boy has gone, we are so proud of you Charlie,” she said, according to the BBC.
Charlie died in a London hospice, where he was transferred on Thursday after the British High Court ruled — against his parents wishes — that he should be allowed to die at home.
