George Floyd died from a “low level of oxygen” caused by Derek Chauvin pinning him to the ground with his hands handcuffed behind him, a leading pulmonologist told the former officer’s murder trial.
Dr Martin Tobin, a world-renowned lung and critical care specialist, told the court that a healthy person would have died from “what Mr Floyd was subjected to”, refuting the defence’s claim that drugs and heart problems led to the 46-year-old’s death.
In precise and detailed testimony, Dr Tobin walked the jury through a series of graphics illustrating how Mr Floyd’s breathing was impacted by Mr Chauvin and two other officers holding him down for more than nine minutes.
He explained that Mr Floyd’s breathing was too shallow to take in enough oxygen, which in turn damaged his brain and caused an abnormal heart rhythm that made his heart stop.
