A series of bystanders who witnessed former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin kneel on a handcuffed George Floyd testified in court Tuesday about the horror and fear they felt watching Floyd slowly die.

They included a 9-year-old girl, three high school students, a mixed martial arts fighter and a Minneapolis firefighter. Several said they had gone to the Cup Foods corner store in Minneapolis for a snack or other small item on May 25 last year -- only to witness Floyd's last breaths.

"I was sad and kind of mad," the 9-year-old testified Tuesday. "Because it felt like he was stopping his breathing, and it was kind of like hurting him."
