)A British boy from 660 years died, after the equipment was turned off, after a court order. The boy was found unconscious in April of that year, and since then he has been in a coma. The boy’s parents filed a lawsuit against the hospital, where he was, so that the devices would not be turned off.

The parents also asked permission to transfer the boy to a place where he could die naturally. However, the British court ruled that the hospital could turn off the equipment and denied the transfer request. According to information from Yahoo! News, the doctors who took care of the British boy said that, probably, he had suffered a brain death.
