The last Words of George Floyd

These are the last words of George Floyd, a 46-year-old man who died as a US police officer pinned him down, kneeling on his neck for seven minutes, until he suffocated:

“It’s my face man
I didn’t do nothing serious man
please
please
please I can’t breathe
please man
please somebody
please man
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
please
(inaudible)
man can’t breathe, my face

I can’t breathe sh*t

I’m claustrophobic
my stomach hurt
my neck hurts

I cannot breathe
I cannot breathe

George Floyd was pronounced dead shortly after.
