BREAKING NEWS: Charlie Gard, baby at center of end-of-life debate, has died

Terminally ill British infant Charlie Gard, whose parents’ fight for his life drew worldwide attention, has died, according to a family spokesperson.
Alison Smith-Squire, a spokeswoman for Charlie's family, said in a statement to ABC News: "The boy who touched the world has passed away today. [Charlie's mother] Connie [Yates] said: 'Our beautiful little boy has gone, we're so proud of him.'"

After a long and emotional legal battle, Britain's High Court decided Thursday that Charlie should be moved from a hospital to a hospice, where the 11-month-old would be taken off life support and "inevitably" die.

Judge Nicholas Francis issued the order after Charlie's parents and the hospital treating him failed to meet a deadline set by the court to agree on an end-of-life plan that could have kept the incurably ill baby alive for a few more days. The judge ruled that Charlie, whose rare illness damaged his brain and rendered him unable to breathe on his own, would then be transferred to a hospice by the hospital medical team and have his ventilator removed.

The exact timeline of these events and the location of the hospice were kept private by court order.
