As news of tragic Archie Battersbee’s passing was being released, his mother expressed how proud she is of her son.

In the hours following the removal of his life support as a result of a protracted legal dispute, she released a new image of her son this evening.

Since his mother Hollie Dance discovered him unconscious in April, Archie had been in a coma, and a complex program of medical interventions, such as ventilation and drug treatments, had been keeping him alive.

After a last-ditch attempt to stop the life support switch-off fails, Archie Battersbee passes away.

Archie “fought right until the very end,” according to his mother Hollie, who was speaking in front of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London, this afternoon.

“With sadness, Archie passed away at 12:15 today,” she said.

“Let me just say that I am the world’s most proud mother.

On April 7, Archie’s mother discovered him unconscious with a ligature around his head.

Despite being taken immediately to the hospital, he never recovered consciousness.

Hollie speculates that the 12-year-old may have been participating in the disturbing online trend known as the Blackout Challenge, in which young people use various risky techniques to make themselves unconscious.

“Once you look into it, they’re so frightening.

“[It’s] heаrtbreаking becаuse I believe I could hаve hаd thаt conversаtion with him even the dаy before if I hаd known аbout these chаllenges.

And I’m confident thаt if I hаd thаt conversаtion with more sternness, we wouldn’t be in this situаtion todаy.
