UK 2-year-old Jewish toddler Alta Fixsler taken off life support

Alta Fixsler, the two-year-old girl whose family fought for months against a court order to take her to Israel or the US for treatment, was taken off life support Monday.

Alta was born with severe brain damage and had been on life support since birth.

Alta’s parents, Avraham and Chaya Fixsler, endured a months long legal battle with the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust to have their daughter taken to either Israel or the United States for specialized care.

Earlier this month, Justice Alistair MacDonald of the Family Division of the High Court ruled that it was in the girl’s “best interest” to be at a children’s hospice when her life support was turned off, despite her parents' wish that it be done at home.
