Alfie Evans, British toddler at centre of legal battle, dies: parents

London (AFP) – Terminally-ill British toddler Alfie Evans died in hospital on Saturday after doctors withdrew life support, the child’s parents said, following a protracted legal battle and a campaign that drew support from Pope Francis.

“Our baby grew his wings tonight at 2:30am (0130 GMT). We are heartbroken. Thank you everyone for all your support,” Kate James and Thomas Evans said in a statement on Facebook.
