‘Low level of oxygen’ led to George Floyd’s death – expert
TRT World says a respiratory doctor has testified that George Floyd died from a lack of oxygen and that Derek Chauvin’s knee was on his neck almost all the time he was facedown in the street with his hands cuffed behind his back.
Martin Tobin, a pulmonologist, told the jury at Chauvin’s murder and manslaughter trial that he had watched videos of Floyd’s May 25, 2020 arrest “hundreds of times.”
“Mr. Floyd died from a low level of oxygen,” Tobin told the jury hearing the high-profile case in a heavily guarded Minneapolis courtroom.
