Parents of the brain-damaged baby say doctors intend to extubate him on Wednesday
The parents of Isaiah Haastrup, the profoundly brain-damaged baby at the centre of a right-to-live legal battle, have said doctors intend to withdraw life support on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after an 11th-hour appeal to European court judges failed.
Isaiahâ€™s parents Lanre Haastrup and Takesha Thomas, both 36, from south London, said they were shocked and disappointed at the timing. â€œSurely, this is not sufficient to say our goodbyes to our son; we would require a reasonable period to spend with Isaiah,â€� the couple said in a statement.
