Charlie Gard's parents end legal battle for their baby's treatment

Charlie Gard in Great Ormond Street Hospital

"For Charlie, it is too late.treatment can not offer a chance of success", he told the court, adding that experts have said that the "window of opportunity no longer exists".

"We only wanted to give him a chance of life", said Charlie's mother, Ms Yates.

The parents believe Charlie could have gone on to live a full and healthy life if he had been allowed to receive experiment all treatment in November previous year.

"We will have to live with the what-ifs which will haunt us for the rest of our lives".

"Unfortunately he won't make his first birthday in just under two weeks time".

According to the BBC, a lawyer representing Charlie's parents - Chris Gard and Connie Yates - told the High Court that "time had run out" for the baby, because an American doctor said it is now too late for Charlie to undergo treatment.

But the hospital denied this, saying the child had suffered irreversible brain damage from seizures that began a year ago.

"In the months ahead, all at GOSH will be giving careful thought to what they can learn from this bruising court case that might enrich the care it provides to its most vulnerable patients and families", hospital lawyer Katie Gollop said in the statement.

"It is now too late to treat Charlie", he said.

Boogotti continued posting videos about the ordeal on his Instagram page, reiterating that he did not steal Blitz. Blitz was featured in the video, with the rapper clearly saying he wanted $20,000 in exchange for the dog.

He says delays in treating Charlie mean his condition is now so poor that treatment will not help. "Devastatingly, the information obtained since 13 July gives no cause for optimism". The judge expressed his sympathy and said that the parents did everything they could for the 11-month-old infant.

Here's Chris and Connie's statement outside the courtroom. They suggested switching off his life support and allow him to die peacefully.

"We truly believe that any parent would have wanted the same thing if they knew what we knew".

Judge Francis had scheduled a two-day hearing to consider fresh evidence by Dr Hirano who had come to London from Columbia Medical Center in NY to examine Charlie.

Chris Gard and Connie Yates wept as their attorney revealed the results of brain scans.

Baby Charlie suffers from an extremely rare genetic condition called encephalomyopathic mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (MDDS), having begun to display symptoms not long after he was born.

Gard's United Kingdom doctors didn't believe that Charlie could ever recover and believed treatment would only prolong his suffering.

Meanwhile, Charlie's parents say they've also been victims of "backlash" after the hospital received the threats, including "the most hurtful comments from the public", the BBC reported. Even US President Donald Trump and Pope Francis have weighed in on the discussion, with Trump offering "to help".

He is at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital, alive only because a machine is helping him breathe. Staff have received abuse both in the street and online. "Thousands of abusive messages have been sent to doctors and nurses whose life's work is to care for sick children".
