Parent’s nightmare: Archie Battersbee withdrawn from life support, following legal battle



Archie was found unconscious in his home, on April 7, with a bandage over his head. Some reports suggest the 12-year-old was taking part in a viral challenge that went horribly wrong.

Archie’s treatment was withdrawn in The Royal London Hospital, with his parents by his side as he took his final breaths.

His mother says he fought until the end.

“He was taken off medication at 10am, his stats remained stable until two hours later…

I would just like to say I am the proudest mum in the world… He was such a beautiful little boy. He fought right until the very end and I am so proud to be his mum.”

Initially, Archie’s heartbroken parents Hollie Dance and Paul Battersbee sought legal action to keep him alive. However, after four months in a coma, doctors at the Royal London Hospital confirmed Archie was ‘brain-stem dead’ with no chance of recovery.

After learning Archie’s fate, his parent’s pleaded with the High Court, Court of Appeal and European Court of Human Rights to have the right to choose where he takes his final breath.

They insisted on moving Archie to a hospice. However, Mrs Justice Theis from the High Court, rejected their appeal.

Life support was withdrawn at 10 am on Saturday local time and Archie passed away at 12:15 pm. He took his final breaths with his heartbroken family at his side.

New York Stock Exchange in free fall



Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
