Alfie Evans still breathing despite termination of life support.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

SKY News reports that the father of Alfie Evans, Tom said doctors were “gobsmacked” his 23-month-old son was still breathing eleven hours after his life support ended.

Mr Evans said it became obvious he was breathing “within a few minutes” of life-support being withdrawn on Monday night, although doctors re-intervened after he asked them to help.

He added: “Because he’s been doing it for nine hours totally unexpected, the doctors are gobsmacked and I do believe he will need some form of life support in the next couple of hours and I think he ought to be respected and given that.”

Earlier, Evans was granted Italian citizenship, so as the child could be taken to Italy for further cure.
