BUT The story of Archie Battersby, a British boy who was in a coma for months, could end on Tuesday.

After three months in a coma, the UK Supreme Court ruled in June that 12-year-old Archie Battersby was “clinically dead,” thus ordering the child’s life-sustaining treatment to be discontinued.

Holly Dance and Paul Battersby, the boy’s parents, disputed the decision, claiming that the boy’s heart was still beating. and began a legal battle to keep the child alive.

The latest decision proved the doctors right, ruling that the machines that keep Archie alive will be turned off today, August 2.

“Soon, your system, your organs, and ultimately your heart will stop,” the judge said.

Archie Battersby has been in a coma since April 7 after his mother found him unconscious with a bandage on his head at his home in Southend, Essex, possibly due to a viral social media challenge.

In June, experts said in court that Archie was not showing “outstanding” brain activity. The mother claims that “this is the first time someone has been declared ‘probably dead’ based on an MRI.”

“Your heart is still beating. As long as it is the will of God, I will not accept him to leave, ”he added then, assuring that the family would not give up.

However, after the family’s lawyer Edward Devereaux QC demanded that the boy continue to receive treatment under international law, the judge ruled that the medical reports indicated that the treatment should be completed.

According to the British Underground, cars should be turned off this afternoon.

After the plane thaw found two corpses in the Swiss Alps

After the discovery of the wreckage, two bodies were found in the melting ice of the Swiss Alps. Snowless winters and hot July temperatures are slowly revealing the secrets hidden in the Alps.

Two French climbers discovered the bodies on Wednesday while climbing the Chesgen glacier in Valais.

The bones were brought by helicopter for examination. Police say the DNA identification process “may take several days.”

The discovery happened next to a trail that hadn’t been used in over a decade, said Dario Andenmatten, director of the mountain hut in Britain, where many climbers start their ascents in the region.

French climbers were guided by an old map, which led to the discovery. One of the climbers claims that one of the bodies found was wearing “clothing from the 80s.” According to the report, the body was mummified and slightly damaged, “but nearly intact.”

Investigators estimate the death occurred “around the 1970s or 1980s.”

A week ago, a body was found next to the Stockey glacier, near the resort of Zermatt, on Monte Cervino, the most famous mountain in the Alps.

Police in the Alps maintain a list of some 300 people who have gone missing since 1925, one of which is billionaire supermarket chain owner Karl-Erivan Haub who disappeared in 2018.

After a relatively snowless winter, the Swiss Alps have already experienced two heatwaves in the summer. In July, authorities advised climbers not to climb the Matterhorn due to abnormally high temperatures, which reached almost 30 degrees Celsius in Zermatt.

During the July heat wave, the height at which the water froze was a record 5184 meters compared to the normal summer level of 3000 to 3500 meters.
