Derek Chauvin Had To Be Forced Off Of George Floyd By Medics, Witness Claims

According to Darnella, Chauvin did not appear to care for Floyd’s state. She said he did not allow Floyd to breathe or make any attempt to administer CPR.

Instead, the witness suggested Chauvin increased pressure on Floyd’s neck.

“If anything, he actually was kneeling harder. Like, he was shoving his knee in his neck.”

Elsewhere, Darnella claimed that she could tell Floyd was suffering during the incident.

As reported by Newsweek, Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, claimed that Floyd’s death was a homicide. However, the defense is pointing to Floyd’s underlying health conditions and drug use.
