George Floyd died from lack of oxygen, not fentanyl, says expert

Contradicting the defence, Dr Martin Tobin said fentanyl did not cause Mr Floyd's death. He said even a "healthy person...would have died".

Mr Chauvin, 45, was filmed kneeling on Mr Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes during his arrest last May.

The ex-officer is on trial for murder and has denied the charges against him.

The footage of Mr Chauvin, who is white, with his knee on African-American Mr Floyd's neck sparked global protests against racism.

The trial is in its second week and is expected to last for at least one month. The defence is due to begin arguing its case in court next week.

What did the experts say about fentanyl?
A toxicology report released last June said that Mr Floyd had the painkiller fentanyl and the drug methamphetamine in his system.

Since then, the defence has argued that the fentanyl caused Mr Floyd's loss of oxygen.

However Dr Tobin, an intensive care doctor, said that Mr Floyd's breathing did not slow down enough for the painkiller to have been a factor in his total loss of oxygen.

Meanwhile, forensic toxicologist Daniel Isenschmid, whose laboratory tested Mr Floyd's blood and urine samples following his death, said there was evidence that some of the fentanyl had metabolised, meaning that an overdose was less likely.

The man accused of killing George Floyd
Watching the Chauvin trial 'was hurtful'
'I stay up at night apologising to George'
The defence also questioned Kentucky police surgeon Dr Bill Smock, an expert in forensic emergency medicine.

Dr Smock said Mr Floyd displayed "air hunger", a term for when the body becomes desperate for oxygen. While a fentanyl overdose can slow down breathing, he said people who are overdosing are not aware that they are lacking oxygen and often appear sleepy. In contrast, he said Mr Floyd appeared to be alert.

On cross-examination, he agreed with the defence that there was "no safe" amount of methamphetamine to be in someone's system, and that an overdose of methamphetamine and fentanyl combined may look different from fentanyl alone.

Dr Smock also told the court that while viewing the footage, he heard Mr Floyd complain about being unable to breathe before he was restrained on the ground.

What else was the court told?
Asked about the positioning of the handcuffs behind Mr Floyd's back, coupled with the downward pressure of Mr Chauvin's weight against him, Dr Tobin - an expert in pulmonary medicine - said that Mr Floyd's ability to expand his chest to breathe was severely impaired.

"[George Floyd] is jammed down against the street, so the street is playing a major role in preventing him from expanding his chest.

"He's against a hard asphalt street, so the way they're pushing down on his handcuffs combined with the street... it's like the left side is in a vice."

Some team news from the Newcastle camp for their game at Burnley now...

Steve Bruce has confirmed that captain Jamaal Lascelles is ruled out.

"The disappointing news is Jamaal Lascelles is missing with a foot injury suffered last week," said Bruce.

"It's not looking so good at the moment so he will have more scans over the weekend, he won't play this weekend that's for sure, it's a stress fracture.

"Clark and Fernandez are OK. Fernandez hasn't played for a long time though."

But it looks like Callum Wilson is in line to make his return.

"I am sure everybody will be asking about Callum, he will be in the squad. He's trained all week.

"Carroll has a chance, Fraser hasn't improved at all. That is a bit of a worry, a groin injury. Big training session today for Carroll, he has not trained for two and a half weeks."

Many professional clubs have agreed to a social media boycott for a week due to concerns about how platforms deal with racist abuse, and Aston Villa boss Dean Smith says it is the "right way to go".

"There has to be a unilateral agreement between the clubs to boycott social media to see if we get some movement from the social media companies," said Smith.

"I think if the football clubs do it the media should too. I would support it. I'm not a big social media user but my players are and the social media abuse is getting out of hand.

"I think it is the right way to go."

 

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith says talisman Jack Grealish has had a "setback" in his recovery, and will be unavailable for a "couple of weeks".

The forward, who has not played since 13 February, has been struggling with a shin injury.

"Jack Grealish isn't fit to play [against Liverpool]," said Smith.

"He’s had a setback and that will put him back a couple of weeks. Unlikely he will be back for a few weeks. We know it’s not a long term injury, we probably pushed him back a little bit too quickly."

Asked if Grealish will be available for England this summer, Smith said: "I think he’s proved himself already. He will be back before the end of the season. He’s played 20 odd games so everyone has an idea about where his form is and everything else.

"[Kortney] Hause is fit and will be in the squad. Wesley came off in a

U23's game but it was nothing, he’s trained every day since. He could potentially play before the end of the season."

 

 

Last week felt like a real kick in the teeth for Fulham, who collapsed in the final few minutes against Aston Villa to turn what would have been a big win for them into a damaging defeat.

This is another chance for them to climb out of the bottom three, against a team who have not won for a while, but I just wonder how much that capitulation will have deflated them.

Wolves have not won for five games, since they beat Leeds on 19 February, but I don't think they are playing as badly as their results suggest.
