This after a United Kingdom judge ruled Charlie would not be allowed to die at home as requested by his parents.

Following news of the boy's death, US Vice President Mike Pence tweeted: "Saddened to hear of the passing of Charlie Gard. Karen & I offer our prayers & condolences to his loving parents during this hard time". "For this, he prays that their wish to accompany and treat their child until the end is not neglected".

His parents abandoned a five-month legal battle on Monday to have him moved from Great Ormond Street hospital and taken to the United States for experimental treatment after research showed his genetic condition was irreparable.

Michio Hirano, a neurology expert at Columbia Medical Center in NY, and doctors from the Vatican's Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital initially said the medical treatment, nucleoside therapy, might help Charlie, according to the Associated Press.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she was deeply saddened by the news and her thoughts and prayers were with Charlie's parents. "My thoughts and prayers are with Charlie's parents Chris and Connie at this hard time", May said in a statement released on Friday.

The US Vice-President Mike Pence tweeted: "Saddened to hear of the passing of Charlie Gard. Karen & I offer our prayers & condolences to his loving parents during this hard time".

"Our attractive little boy has gone, we're so proud of him", Ms Yates said in a statement. But the Supreme Court agreed with the lower courts, saying it was in Charlie's best interests that he be allowed to die. His parents were forced to give up their fight and succumb to the hospital's demands to remove life support. The case trickled through the British court system and ended up in the European Court of Human Rights, which declined to hear it, upholding previous court rulings that it was in Charlie's best interest to let him die.

Great Ormond Street said its doctors and nurses had been getting death threats over the case. "Sometimes they do not have the strength, confidence or support to deal with the media and the public and often find themselves under pressure to agree with the hospital over a course of action". "We are so proud of you, Charlie".

The case drew comment from Trump, who tweeted on July 3 that "we would be delighted" to help Charlie. "Sweet dreams baby. Sleep tight our attractive little boy'".

The parents then asked for Gard to be taken to their home for his final days but were overruled by the hospital which said the ventilator keeping him alive was too bulky to fit through their front door.
