“Come on, man. Oh, oh. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. Ah! He’s going to kill me. He’s going to kill me. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. Oh!” Floyd said in response to Chauvin, according to transcripts.
A minute later Floyd did not react and was later pronounced dead.
Authorities did not release camera footage from the camera, and CNN was unable to confirm the records. CNN approached the court asking for the videos listed in the motion.
CNN contacted a lawyer representing the Floyd family.
All four officers were fired.
Eric Nelson, Chauvin, a lawyer, declined to comment on the transcripts on Wednesday.
Before Floyd was forced to the ground, he told officers he could not breathe, shared that he had suffered from Covid-19 and was claustrophobic, according to the transcript.
Floyd was frightened when officers tried to place him in a police car, details of the transcript and told officers to “tell my children, I love them. I’m dead.”
Later, while Floyd was nailed to the ground, Lane asked Chauvin if officers should shift Floyd to his side, creating concern about potential medical urgency, according to transcripts.
“No, he stays where we got him,” Chauvin replied, the transcript says.
According to the proposal, Lane twice asked if Floyd should be transferred to his side. Chauvin, a training officer and 20-year veteran, told Lane to keep him there until an ambulance arrived, according to the proposal. Chauvin assured Lane that Floyd was fine and Lane was unable to see any “visible intentional harm,” the proposal said.
Lane’s attorney, Gray, said in the motion that his client was unaware that Chauvin had committed the crime while they were holding back Floyd. The lawyer said the decision to restrict Floyd was reasonably justified, the motion said.
