‘Please, please, please, I can’t breathe … please, man … my stomach hurts, my neck hurts, everything hurts … I can’t breathe,’ said Floyd, who later died in police custody.

All four of the officers were fired from the police department and face charges in connection with Floyd’s death: Chavin is charged with murder and manslaughter, while his colleagues Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng face charges of aiding and abetting murder and manslaughter.
