Dr. Tobin Testifies In Rebuttal For State–Says Carbon Monoxide Theory Is ‘Simply Wrong’ (Video)

On Thursday, Dr. Martin Tobin, a native of Co Kilkenny now based in the Chicago area, was called back to to the stand for a rebuttal to debunk the defense’s witness, Dr. David Fowler’s, theory that George Floyd may have died from carbon monoxide poisoning from the squad car of the officer.

He stated, “If hemoglobin is saturated at 98 percent, it tells you all there was for everything else is two percent, so the maximum amount of carbon monoxide would be two percent.”

Blackwell asked, “So in other words, as to the statement that his [Floyd’s] carboxyhemoglobin could have increased by 10 to 18 percent, in your view, that’s not possible?”

“It’s simply wrong,” Dr. Tobin said, adding that Floyd’s level was at most 2 percent, which is “normal.”

As previously reported, while not having actual evidence, Fowler testified hat Floyd did not “exclusively die” from carbon monoxide poisoning, but that paired with heart disease are “adversely affected” by carbon monoxide.

As you know, Derek Chauvin decided to not testify and invoked his 5th amendment right in his case of killing George Floyd.

Chauvin assured Judge Peter Cahill that his decision was solely left up to him, and he was well informed by his lawyer several times.

“I have repeatedly advised you that this is your decision and your decision alone,” his attorney Eric Nelson said to Chauvin in front of the court.
