French patient at the centre of right-to-die case passes away

A man, who became a symbol of the right-to-die debate in France, died after doctors removed his feeding tubes. Vincent Lambert, 42, had been in a vegetative state since a motorcycle accident 11 years ago. Doctors began taking him off life support last week after a ruling by an appeals court. Lambert’s parents, who battled to keep their son alive, were told there could be no further appeal.
