BBC -- Charlie Gard parents end legal fight as time runs out for baby

The parents of Charlie Gard, the 11-month-old terminally ill baby at the center of a legal attempt to keep him alive, now accept that further intervention will not help him.

Connie Yates and Chris Gard had fought against a decision by Great Ormond Street Hospital in London to turn off the life support machine keeping their son, Charlie, alive.

Barrister Grant Armstrong, representing the couple, told the court that "time has now ran out for Charlie" and the family is now withdrawing their challenge.
