Chauvin Trial: George Floyd ‘Gradually Succumbed to Lower And Lower Levels Of Oxygen’

Witness Bill Smock, a Louisville physician in forensic medicine, on Thursday dismissed the idea that fentanyl, which George Floyd was found to have consumed at some point before he died, could be blamed for his death.

“He’s breathing. He’s talking. He’s not snoring. He’s saying, ‘Please, please get off of me, I can’t breathe.’ That is not a fentanyl overdose. That’s someone begging to breathe,” an expert testified.
