George Floyd, A black-American, whose death incident has caused severe unrest across the US is being told has died of Asphyxia, an independent post-mortem revealed.
The man died of a pressure put on his neck and back by the Minneapolis police officers, Michael Baden, one of the two doctors hired by Floyd’s family revealed. This can be seen clearly in an image or viral video clip in which one of the officers named Derek Chauvin kept kneeling on his throat while the other three officers seemed were pressuring on his back, he pleaded to let him breathe, but the lack of oxygen could not make him survive anymore.
Asphyxia is a condition in which a shortage of oxygen occurs when the blood supply blocks to certain parts of the body. A similar case happened to the African-American who was pressured on his neck this led to blocking the blood supply to the brain that resulted in a lack of oxygen and died.
It was recorded the strain was sustained by the officer for about nine minutes in aggregate and for three minutes after he got out cold.
However, the official autopsy done by the country’s medical inspectors is different from the above-mentioned post-mortem examination.
Lawyer of Floyd’s family stated death was found as an intentional killing.
The death of an innocent, unarmed black man has sparked violence across many states of the US and the demonstrations entered into the sixth consecutive day.
Protesters rushed to the streets–a time ago were deserted–all over the country and demand justice for Floyd.
The legal team of Floyd’s Family told the press congress, “he would be alive today undoubtedly if he was not strained on his throat and back by the officers.”
The lawyer, Benjamin Crump said, ” the ambulance was his hearse.”
Derek Chauvin has been declared as a murderer of third-degree however, Crump wants him to be charged with first-degree murder.
Curfews have been imposed in more than 75 cities of the US which have become severe protest zones. Demonstrators can be seen rushing shoulder to shoulder–defying social distancing–to want justice to be done, and the culprit must be sentenced to death in order to eliminate the police brutality for black-Americans in the future.
