Smith also described taking the handcuffs off Floyd after he was moved to the ambulance as well as identifying “superficial” injuries to his nose and shoulder.

The paramedic pointed Floyd’s bloodied nose as the new footage showed one of the police officer’s involved in the 46-year-old’s arrest carrying out chest compressions.

Earlier on Thursday, fellow paramedic Seth Zachary Brabinder described how he “didn’t see him moving or breathing” when he first approached Floyd.

He added that Floyd was “limp” when he was placed in the ambulance.

Smith and Brabinder gave tehir testimony on the fourth day of Chauvin’s trial.

The ex-cop, 45, faces charges of unintentional second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter for kneeling on Floyd’s neck for 9 minutes, 29 seconds, as he lay face down in handcuffs.

The arrest and death was filmed in now infamous footage but the jury was this week presented with further surveillance footage from the Cup Foods store where Floyd was arrested.

arlier in the week, a cashier told the court that Floyd “appeared high” in the store and that he used a “fake” bill which led the manager to call the cops

The jury was also shown the full bodycam footage from Chauvin and the other officers involved in the arrest.

The trial is expected to last for four weeks.
