Mother's grief at baby RB death
A severely ill baby at the centre of a
legal battle over his treatment has
died, his mother has told newspapers.
The father of the one-year-old - known
as Baby RB - had fought to stop a
hospital withdrawing life support from
his son, but later dropped his case.
The hospital was backed by the mother
of Baby RB, born with a rare condition
that limits independent breathing.
His mother says both parents were at
his side when RB's life support system
was switched off on Friday.
