Archie Battersbee inquest: Coroner concludes 12-year-old died accidentally in ‘prank or experiment’ that went wrong | UK News

Archie Battersbee died accidentally in a “prank or experiment” that went wrong, a coroner has concluded.

Essex senior coroner Lincoln Brookes said that Archie “hadn’t intended to harm himself but had done so inadvertently” during the prank or experiment.

Mr Brookes added that Archie wanted to “shock his mum as she came out of the bedroom to find him doing something shocking or reckless” or he was “just experimenting”.

He said: “It probably went wrong very quickly and very badly.”

He added it was “possible” that Archie had been taking part in an online challenge, but he had not seen evidence of this.

Mr Brookes had considered a conclusion of suicide but ruled this out, adding: “It seems to me that while there were periods of low mood and very low mood during the previous 12 months, in the days preceding his death I haven’t received any evidence of that.”

Speaking outside the court after the inquest, Archie’s mum, Hollie Dance said the coroner had reached the “right decision”.

Hollie Dance, the mother of Archie Battersbee, speaks to media following the second day of the inquest into the death of Archie Battersbee, at Essex Coroner's Court in Chelmsford, Essex. 12-year-old Archie died on August 6, 2022, after his life support was withdrawn following a legal battle between his parents and the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London.

It had helped her with “some of the answers, but not all”.

She said: “It’s time to allow us as a family to grieve.”

She wanted people to remember her son as “fun-loving, very energetic, one of the most talented children I know”.

Meanwhile, Mr Brookes had said Archie was “full of energy” and “very physical” and that he was “at times very bored”.

He added that Archie liked to “trick” and carry out “stunts” that would “alarm people”.

August 2022: How Archie’s story unfolded

On the day of the incident in April 2021, Archie had gone out to lunch with his mum, before shopping at Tesco, where he had told her he needed a new coat.

When they got home, she said he had been joking around and playing with their pet rabbit.

They had planned to go to the cinema after and discussed what was on.

That was the last conversation they had, as 10 minutes later, Ms Dance said she found Archie unconscious on the stairs.

Archie would remain on life support until 6 August 2022, when it was withdrawn after his parents failed to overturn a High Court ruling that doctors could lawfully do so.

The 12-year-old died of a brain injury, according to the coroner.

Archie’s family wanted the inquest to address the issue of online safety, in a similar way to the inquest into the death of 14-year-old Molly Russell, which found she died from “an act of self-harm while suffering from depression and the negative effects of online content”.

Ms Dance said her family had experienced trolling and that online abuse was a “major issue that really does have to be addressed”.

GP surgery accidentally texts patients they have ‘aggressive lung cancer’ – instead of Happy Christmas | UK News

A GP surgery in Doncaster accidentally texted patients that they had “aggressive lung cancer” – instead of wishing them a merry Christmas.

Askern Medical Practice reportedly made the unfortunate error on the afternoon of Friday 23 December, telling patients they had metastatic cancer.

About 20 minutes later a follow-up message conveyed the surgery’s “sincere apologies” for the previous text and said they had meant to wish everyone happy holidays.

“At first I thought is this some kind of sick joke?” Carl, 42, told Sky News.

He was one of a number of people believed to have received the worrying message.

“And then I am like well I do smoke so do they know something I don’t?

“I kind of sat there and worried about it for a while, it really stressed me out,” he added.

The first message also referred to a DS1500 form, which is issued to people believed to be suffering from a potentially terminal illness.

“I thought what the hell, have I got cancer? Have I got terminal lung cancer?”

When his mother told him that she had received the same message, it became clear that it was not a genuine diagnosis.

“That’s enough to destroy someone,” Carl said.

Carl, from Doncaster, said the second text which apologised for the diagnosis message was “absolutely disgusting”.

He said it felt like the surgery was trying to “nonchalantly” sweep the issue aside.

Carl says he has been registered at the surgery for 30 years but is now switching following this incident.

Sky News has approached Askern Medical Practice for comment.
