A seriously ill baby at the center of a legal battle in the UK has died after being taken off life support.

Staff at Queen’s Medical Center (QMC), located in Nottingham, England, said there was nothing they could do for Andy Gregory, who was suffering from a mitochondrial disorder.

The disease is characterized by a failure in the functioning of mitochondria, the vital structure in cells responsible for generating energy.

Indi’s father, Dean Gregory, said the eight-month-old girl died at 1:45am local time on Monday (11/13) after being transferred to a palliative care unit.
