Little Charlie Gard's Parents Announces He's Dead

Eleven-month-old Charlie Gard, whose short life captured the hearts of the world, has died, just a week before his first birthday.

Charlie suffered from a rare genetic condition which saw him in hospital for the majority of his short life.

His parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, fought a lengthy and emotional legal battle to take their
severely ill baby son to the US for treatment, which was denied by judges.

Charlie's mother, Connie, said: 'Our beautiful little boy has gone, we are so proud of you Charlie.'

Yesterday courts denied his parents the chance to bring their son home to die and he was taken to a hospice. Charlie's plight has seen hundreds of supporters - called Charlie's Army - lending their voices and money to see the child given treatment with £1.35 million raised on an online fund-raising site.

Pope Francis and US president Donald Trump weighed in. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE. This is pretty sad!
