Derek Chauvin trial: George Floyd suffered ‘tremendous pain and drooled before he died'.

A WITNESS has told Derek Chauvin’s murder trial that George Floyd was in "tremendous pain" and gasping for air in the final moments of his life.

Donald Williams, 33, returned to complete his testimony on the second day of the trial on Tuesday, wiping away tears as he recalled witnessing Floyd's death and how his eyes were "rolling back in his head."

Williams was the first to take the stand on Tuesday.

He was among the bystanders heard in the widely shared video of Floyd's arrest arguing with Minneapolis police officers about the way in which they were pinning the father-of-one to the ground

"You could see that he (Floyd) was going through tremendous pain, and you can see it in his face," Williams told jurors.

"You can see it in his eyes, slowly rolling back in his head and him having his mouth open, wide open, slowly with drool and slobber and dryness on his mouth.

"And you can see that he’s (Floyd) trying to gasp for air, trying to be able to breathe as he's down there, trying to move his face side to side, I’m assuming to gasp for more air," Williams added.
