An eight month old boy being denied “potentially life-saving” treatment at a UK hospital that would be given it at any hospital in America.
The parents broke down in tears as they listened to medical evidence relating to his rare genetic condition and what his doctors say is a “vanishingly small” chance of his survival.
But an American doctor who has agreed to attempt a pioneering treatment for his disorder, said that it was “reasonable” to attempt to save his life and if he were in a hospital in the USA his parents would have the option.
The UK based hospital applied to the High Court for permission to withdraw life support and argue that he should not be taken abroad for treatment as it will prolong his suffering.
