Witness breaks down after George Floyd video: "I understand him"

Witness Charles McMillian, 61, broke down Wednesday afternoon after prosecutors played police bodycam video of George Floyd saying over and over that he couldn't breathe and calling for his mother.

The big picture: The reaction captured what we've seen from witness after witness — the trauma of reliving those harrowing moments on global television as America reckons all over again with one of its worst moments.

Paramedic says he saw officers "on top of" George Floyd as he arrived on scene

The paramedic called to the scene of George Floyd's murder said Thursday "[multiple officers] were still on top" of Floyd as they arrived.

The state of play: The court heard earlier from Floyd's girlfriend, who described him as a kind man despite an ongoing struggle with opioid addiction. Following her testimony, a Hennepin County paramedic took the stand to detail the step-by-step events after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on Floyd's neck for over nine minutes.
