Archie Battersbee is a 12 years old Boy who has suffered brain damage and is currently on admission at Royal London Hospital.
It is believed that Archie Battersbee is dead. But the mother of Archie Battersbee, Hollie Dance is in contention that her son is still alive and that the life support treatment should not be taken off him.
Miss Dance said Archie was “stable” in a Facebook post on Saturday. “I apologize for being a bit distant,” she wrote. “I’m broken, but I won’t give up.” This morning, Arch is stable.”
A high court judge, Mrs Justice Arbuthnot concluded late Friday that a brain-stem test should be carried out to determine whether Archie Battersbee is alive or dead.
The brain-stem test would be in Archie Battersbee’s best interest since it is responsible for the functions which kept people alive.
