A grieving family who were told their ‘cheeky’ eight-year-old son was brain dead after suffering a seizure on a trip to Barbados is now enduring a ‘living nightmare’ after government officials refused to turn off his life support.

Ace Field was no different to any other healthy little boy when he arrived in Barbados for a family trip from Portsmouth last week. 

But last Tuesday he began feeling ill and was rushed to hospital, where a series of scans revealed he was suffering from acute myeloid leukaemia.

Little Ace was sitting up in his hospital bed, FaceTiming friends and playing card games with his parents until January 8, when his condition had rapidly deteriorated. 

Within minutes of coming down with a headache, Ace suffered a catastrophic seizure. He has never regained consciousness.

Now, his devastated family are battling with the government in Barbados for the right to turn his life support off.
