Charlie Gard: European Court Sentences Sick Baby To DEATH

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) have ordered doctors to switch off a life-support used to keep a baby, Charlie Gard to allow him 'die with dignity'.

Chris Gard, 32, and Connie Yates, 31, wanted to take their 10-month-old son - who suffers from a rare genetic condition - to the US to undergo a therapy trial, Daily Mail reports.

At just 8 weeks old, Charlie was diagnosed with mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a condition which causes progressive muscle weakness and brain damage and has affected only 16 children in the world.

However, doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital declared that Charlie cannot survive it.

The parents of the 10-months old baby prayed the court to allow them use a potential life-saving drug from the U.S. on their son which they believe would help their son's genetic condition rather than allowing him to die as doctors have recommended.

However, a ruling made by the court said Charlie has been subjected to so much pain, suffering and distress adding that the parents' application was 'inadmissible and the court's decision was final.
