MFD releases incident report in George Floyd’s fatal arrest
The Minneapolis Fire Department (MFD) released an incident report on Wednesday about what occurred during the incident of George Floyd’s fatal arrest.
According to the fire department’s report, while en route was given the pre-arrival information that stated that Floyd had trauma to his mouth.
Once they fully arrived at the scene of Cup Foods, there were multiple squad police cars and a small crowd of people.
The report goes on to say that when the fire department was attempting to locate Floyd, the crew overheard and was told by several people that the police "had killed the man."
There was no clear info on Floyd or the location given by the initial police officer and bystanders.
The fire crew finally located an officer inside the store who stated Hennepin County Medical Center medics had loaded Floyd and relocated him from the scene.
They also encountered an off-duty firefighter who had witnessed the end of the struggle and witnessed that Floyd was struggling and then became unresponsive on the ground while handcuffed and subdued by police officers.
Dispatch then notified the fire crew that the medics needed assistance and they responded to 36th and Park Avenue.
Two fire crew members got into the ambulance and the medics had a chest compression device working on Floyd who was "unresponsive" and "pulseless".
The fire crew members assisted medics and accompanied them to Hennepin Healthcare, where life-saving attempts were continued.
The report states that medics performed pulse checks several times, finding none, and delivered one shock by their monitor.
Floyd was pronounced dead at Hennepin Healthcare.
