Charlotte Wyatt Do Not Resuscitate Order LiftedTopics: News
Charlotte Wyatt was born prematurely at St. Mary's hospital on the 21st of October 2003. She weighed 458 grams (about a pound) and was barely five inches long. Three times in her short life she had to be re-ventilated. Despite her doctor's predictions and a court ruling last Fall imposing a Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order on her, Charlotte lived and is thriving.
Earlier this year a Judge decided against removing the DNR from Charlotte and her parents appealed.
Today, after a long and well fought battle, British High Court Mr. Justice Hedley lifted the Do Not Resuscitate Order!
Charlotte's parents issued this statement:
Darren and Debbie are very happy that the order what has been hanging over Charlotte for over a year now has been lifted as this has caused a huge strain on their lives.Truth and Action has more.
