Alfie Evans, the 23-month-old toddler at the center of a High Court legal battle, has died.
The sweet precious boy from Merseyside, who had a degenerative brain condition, died at 02:30 BST, his father Tom Evans said.
On Facebook, he wrote: "My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings… absolutely heartbroken."
Alfie’s parents constantly placed pressure on the justice system trying to keep their son alive.
Following the rejections by the judges in the European Court of Rights, Tom said he and Kate were “in bits, distraught, in pain”, and the decision meant their son was “about to be murdered”.

The family took their battle to the Supreme Court after the Court of Appeal agreed with Alder Hey that Alfie “could not be saved” and that it would be “unkind” and “futile” to continue treatment. On April 20, a bid to have the decision overturned was denied.
Last Friday, outside Alder Hey hospital, Tom said he was told he could face prison if he removes Alfie from the hospital, and there were police officers on the ward to stop him from taking his son.
Following one appeal, Lord Justice Davis ruled that Alfie’s life support must be turned off and told lawyers that doctors had agreed that there was “no hope”.
He said: “We cannot have a kind of legal Groundhog Day where you come back again and again and again on the same point.”
On April 23rd, they begin the slow, painful process of his execution by removing him from life support. Alfie defied them again as he continued to breathe on his own, without assistance, for several hours. The doctors, perplexed by this, eventually agreed to give Alfie water but no food. Since they could not suffocate him by taking away his oxygen, they would starve him to death.
Alfie’s parents were granted one final hearing with a judge, praying he would have a conscience and the human decency to let them put their sweet son on that helicopter and take him to a place, with open arms, willing to give him medical care. But sadly he showed them no mercy. Their request was denied. The boy must die. This is his “final chapter,” says the judge.

The sacrifice of this precious child on the altar of Socialism is unconscionable. The Proletariat must be so proud of themselves this morning.
Sorry you had to write about this. How very sad for this family. But now Alfie is living in a kingdom more grand than any. He will never know pain or struggle again. Lord, help this family find comfort in the joy of knowing their baby is with you.
This is outrageous, since when in so-called civilized society do we make it ok to starve someone to death and ,yes, understanding that these are not OUR laws we have lieterally no say in this case. But in America this should NEVER be the Government’s decision. So Heartbreaking
Prayers that this little boy is being comforted and soothed by his Creator in the company of many angels, as well as comfort and Prayer for the patents.
Society must find a better way to deal with such issues. The Government is NOT GOD.
This is just plain wrong. This is murder. What is happening in this world to say this is okay?
I’m sobbing 😭 as I read this. A sweet precious child deserved better than this. My heart hurts for his parents. He’s an angel now. Meanwhile a royal brat was born, and he will never want for anything. This is the kind of thing the late Princess Diana would have fought tooth and nail for Alfie. Too bad her boys didn’t take after her dad n that regard. Well done story.
Lexy, i don't know how hard it was to write this article, But thank you the blood of this child is on the hands of the Government–UK, God has in his wisdom recieved this little angle unto him self, Bless the family and grant them peace, Lexy May God give his peace to you also, The kind of Lady you are & one i admire hoping your pain was not to much, Jack,
"Precious little Alfie, the gladiator, God has you now, little one."

(Perhaps being transported around and put onto an airplane to the Vatican would have 'saved this kid's life' ?.. wrong !… It would have expedited his death)
The doctors were correct in their assessment that this child was on deaths door and nothing could help it.
(By the way, since you believe in your imaginary 'god', explain why all of your prayers did absolutely nothing)
… Apparently, god doesn't find you or your prayers important enough to pay attention to them…
