The second day of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder trial resumed on Tuesday with testimonies from bystanders, including an emergency medical technician and several teenagers, one of whom said “there was nothing we could do.”
The teen who took the video capturing the moment said she would sometimes stay up late at night thinking of Floyd, apologizing to him for “not saving his life.” Attorneys laid out their opening arguments on Monday in the case against Chauvin, who is charged in the death of George Floyd last spring.
Floyd, a Black man, died in police custody on May 25, 2020, after Chauvin pinned his knee against Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes. Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Keep it here for all the latest updates on the trial.
