People have taken to Twitter to protest after the result of George Floyd’s autopsy stated that there are “no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation”, but noted that Floyd had underlying health conditions.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner released these findings after conducting an autopsy on George Floyd on May 26.
The statement said: “Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease.
The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.”
The result of the autopsy angered people and they took to Twitter to say that George didn’t die because of his underlying health conditions. They pointed out that he would still be alive if Derek Chauvin had not knelt on his neck.
