What happened to Archie Battersbee

On April 7, 2022, his mother, Hollie Dance, found Archie Battersbee unconscious after an incident at their home in Southend, Essex. Hollie revealed the reason for the accident might be his online challenges.

After his accident at home, Archie was taken to Southend Hospital and referred to The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, where he remains in a coma.

After the appeal, two specialists tried to administer brain stem function tests. Regrettably, they could not conduct the test as Archie did not respond to a peripheral nerve stimulation test, a precursor to the brain stem test.
