George Floyd died of “asphyxiation” – Doctor confirms

Published

A private autopsy by  George Floyd’s family has revealed that he died of “asphyxiation” due to neck and back compression when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for over 8 minutes.

According to the doctor who carried out the autopsy, the compression cut off blood to Mr Floyd’s brain, and weight on his back made it hard for him to breathe.

The family’s autopsy differs from the official results of Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s autopsy released last week, which reported nothing to support strangulation as cause of death, concluding that the “combined effects of being restrained, potential intoxicants in Floyd’s system & his underlying health issues, including heart disease” likely contributed to his demise.
