He’s a human being and I was trying to give him a second chance at life
They went to HCMC.
Eldridge, "What had to happen before you were able to move to the hospital?
Smith, "We got him to a relatively stable position where I could manage this cardiac arrest .." and says they actively worked on him entire trip to HCMC.
Eldridge asks what happened after they shocked Floyd's heart.
Smith, "he remained in his quote on quote dead state".
Why did you administer shock
Witness “I believe to have seen a run of Pulseless vtack, i administered a shock”
I haven't heard any mention of paramedics administering Narcan... did I just miss it? Seems odd to me.
Because Defense wants jury to believe that death was caused by the drugs in his system? But, why wasn't his condition being treated as an overdose, if that were the case?
Witness: "He's a human being and I was trying to give him a second chance at life."
I don't think defense likes this witness to keep saying he was dead the entire time... sidebar over...
Did anything change
Bowing his head looking like he nearly lost composure imo
Witness: When I showed up he was deceased and when I showed up at the hospital he was still deceased.
Funny he called it an "unwelcoming scene". They couldn't of been more welcome for 99.9% of the people there.
Witness “ i showed up and he was deceased and I dropped him off at the hospital and he was the same”
Okay, this hurt my heart.
(This sounds like a good point to me.)
Unless they wouldn’t know what type of drug, so....
Witness repeated many times during testimony:
I was working a cardiac arrest.
We learn from the second paramedic that GF was in cardiac arrest when they got there, they couldn't get a pulse on the ambulance nor in the hospital.
As I've said before, in my opinion, we may get the MEs side of the story and be over with it
Mine too and I think the paramedic as well
Is it common to feel for a pulse with a thumb?
Witness “generally fingers” touching his neck
officer Chauvin still had his knee on patient
Witness “is that what the video shows”
Witness “were you confirming what she has already gone over”
This witness has attitude I love him. ‘You’re just going over what she’s already said?’
