Pippa Knight: Disabled Girl Dies Following Court Decision

(BBC) – A disabled girl at the centre of a long-running legal row has died after a judge gave permission to withdraw life support treatment.

Six-year-old Pippa Knight had been in a vegetative state at Evelina Children’s Hospital in London.

Her mother, Paula Parfitt, previously challenged a decision by doctors to withdraw life support treatment, but failed in the courts.

The hospital’s lawyers confirmed Pippa has now died. CONTINUE
