Dying baby's parents get second chance

A British court has given the parents of terminally ill 11-month-old Charlie Gard a fresh chance to present evidence as to why they should be allowed to take their son to the United States for experimental treatment.

After an emotionally charged hearing in London's High Court, during which Charlie's mother wept in frustration and his father yelled at a lawyer, Judge Nicholas Francis gave them 48 hours to present new information in the case.

Charlie suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome, a rare genetic disease that has left him brain damaged and unable to breathe
