In accordance with theguardian.com Archie’s parents, Hollie Dance and Paul Battersbee, have in recent days made applications to the high court, the court of appeal and the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to move him to a hospice so he can die with dignity.

The latest appeal to the ECtHR to intervene was rejected late on Friday after the high court ruled that he must remain in the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, East London.

Archie, a talented gymnast and mixed martial artist, had been in a coma since suffering a catastrophic brain injury on April 7. His mother, who has been at his bedside almost constantly since then, believes it was the result of him choking while taking part in a viral social media challenge.
