Expert says Floyd died of lack of oxygen that damaged brain, stopped heart

Testifying in the murder trial of ex-cop Derek Chauvin in George Floyd’s death, Dr Martin Tobin, an expert who specializes in pulmonology, said Floyd died from lack of oxygen that damaged his brain and caused his heart to stop. He said the weight from cops forcing Floyd’s wrist into his chest and an officer’s knee on his left side, acted like a ’vise’ and constricted his left lung from expanding.

Low oxygen also occurs from drug overdose, which was confirmed by the expert physician.

He goes on to testify that a fenynal overdose will cause the same oxygen loss when questioned by the defense. Where is this missing information?

I’ve seen 14 people do the exact same thing on YouTube and NOT DIE. (Go check Steven Crowders video KNEE ON NECK since it’s the easiest to find) Floyd died from an overdose.

How the details of this trial are being reported is a perfect contrast between fact and narrative. It is as if the left/media wants more rioting. Kind of scary how people will just believe the BS being spewed by the media.

When a drug OD stops your heart, you die because your brain can't get oxygen.

Signs of a fentanyl overdose. Check out the last one. -Dizziness: it will be difficult to remain steady and upright during such an overpowering overdose. -Confusion: victims may be unaware of their surroundings, perhaps even unaware that they consumed fentanyl. -Body weakness: fatigue is common. Extremities may exhibit limpness, too. -Sleepiness: lack of proper oxygenation can lead to feelings of drowsiness. -Hypoventilation: slow breathing as opposed to rapid, erratic breaths. Opioids such as fentanyl act upon the centers of the brain that control respiration.

I'm certain many people will only believe the experts that confirm what they already believe. "Look, this expert says he died of an overdose" "No, this expert just said it was oxygen deprivation"

The left seem to be only watching the trial through the prosecution questioning and media snippets rather than the whole trial. The prosecution is practically handing the defence their case.

I highly doubt they will land either 3rd or 2nd degree murder on Chauvin. As soon as the prosecutions witness said Chauvin was in his rights to use a taser but instead chose to use less force, those two charges were launched out the window. The best the prosecution could hope for now is manslaughter due to negligence. But if they keep going as they are, they won't get that. - Chauvin chose to use less force than he was permitted to. - The officers took Floyd out of the car when he asked to be held on the ground. - The expert witness said he would have kept Floyd under restraint. - The bodycam footage shows Chauvin was on his back. - The autopsy showed no bruising or damage to Floyd's neck. - The crowd was being aggressive and hostile. - The officers called for medical assistance. The prosecution needs to prove guilt, the defense has to only provide reasonable doubt for him to walk. There has been more than enough reasonable doubt provided and the defense haven't even presented their case or called their witnesses yet.

Holy crap is this case falling apart fast! Floyd had enough fentanyl to kill 3 people in his system, a half-chewed pill was found on the police car floor with Floyd's saliva on it. Floyd is in tape saying 'I ate too many pills', not to mention that he said he couldn't breathe while inside the car alone. If that wasn't enough, a reverse-angle from a body can clearly shows Chauvin's knee was on Floyd's left shoulder blade, not his neck. Stick a fork in this one. Reasonable doubt has already been established and the defense hasn't even had their turn. This is a perfect example of how the media twists things. Look what their manipulations caused! How many died over this lie? How many billions of dollars lost? Private businesses destroyed! All because the media wanted to put us at each other's throats. Truly the enemy of the people.

It’s over. Floyd would not have died that day if it weren’t for the subhuman that killed him. If conservatives want to be racist then just come out and say it, this hiding behind unbelievable excuses is pathetic.

Pretty disgusting that so many people are willing to watch a man kneel on somebody for 9 minutes and hold the drugs to be the exclusive reason the victim died.

Floyd complained that he couldn't breathe while he was in the squad car before being put on the ground. So there was something other than the officers knee causing him to not be able to breathe.

I guess that is in a way true. Like in the way that all deaths are technically caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. Realistically Floyd died from cardiac arrest as a result of fentanyl overdose and exacerbated by blocked arteries/heart disease and when your heart stops you don't get oxygen to your brain and you die. So he isn't exactly telling a lie.😂🤣😂.... Expert 😂🤣😂

Can't wait to see the medical examiner testify for the defense and the experts that they bring in. The prosecution's case has already been riddled with reasonable doubt by their own witnesses. This shouldn't take long to bring back the not guilty verdict on this one. Get ready for minneapolis to burn again.

Floyd was on his "normal dose" of Fentanyl which consequently would kill someone not tolerant to chronic opioid use.

Then it's a problem with Minnesota's practice of holding probable criminals. Cop was only following the procedures he was taught.

How could he talk then? You need air in your lungs to talk. He couldn't call for his mother if his lungs didn't have air in them. If he was lacking oxygen in his lungs his body would have naturally convulsed trying to get air. If he died from lack of oxygen in the lungs, even held down he would have lost consciousness while skirming and wiggling ferociously; he wouldn't have put his head down and went to sleep.
