Charlie Gard's mom breaks down, storms out of court as fresh medical report emerged

The 11-month-old boy who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage is currently the subject of a legal battle between his parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard, and the hospital

Connie Yates and Chris Gard, the parents of Charlie Gard, the terminally-ill baby who they sought to bring to the United States for a last-ditch experimental treatment, have dropped their legal battle to move their son.

Chris Gard and Connie Yates have given up their legal fight to take their 11 month old son Charlie Gard overseas for life saving treatment.

The parents of little Charlie Gard announced Monday at the High Court in London that they were willing to give up their court proceedings to sustain life.

For several months, Charlie's parents and the Great Ormond Street Hospital have been in a legal battle over what is in the child's best interest.

"It is no longer in Charlie's best interest to pursue this course of treatment", he said, adding that "the damage to his muscles was irreversible".

A lawyer for the parents of critically ill Charlie Gard says the window during which the baby could have been helped by experimental treatment has closed.

Michael Hirano, professor of neurology at Columbia University in NY examined Charlie and told the court there was a 10 percent chance that the baby could improve. Britain's High Court is considering new evidence in the case of Charlie Gard.

Gard and Connie Yates withdrew their appeal during a London High Court hearing, signalling the end of a legal saga that had stretched for months.

"The damage has been done", Mr Armstrong said.

"No parents could have done more for their child", he said. Even though Charlie will die in a few days, they refuse to stop fighting for other children that suffer from the rare disease, plus other terminal illnesses.

The child's case won worldwide attention, with Ms Yates and Mr Gard receiving support from Pope Francis and US President Donald Trump. His doctors have concluded that nothing more can be done for him and that he should be taken off life support.

Charlie's father, Chris Gard, yelled "Evil!" at Gollop as Charlie's mother, Connie Yates, began to cry.

The judge has scheduled a two-day hearing to consider fresh evidence, after the doctor who was to conduct the treatment came to London to evaluate the child.

According to a GoFundMe page organized by Charlie's parents, the infant has spent approximately nine months at London's Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, where he's undergone a series of treatments and has remained on a ventilator.

The family managed to raise over a million and a half dollars to take Charlie to the US for a treatment that might save his life.

Ms Yates said: Despite conflicting issues, we have always had the utmost respect for all the staff who work tirelessly at Great Ormond Street Hospital and the very hard jobs they do every day.

The parent of Charlie Gard put out their own statement in response, saying they did not condone any "threatening or abusive remarks" made towards any of the trust's staff.
