Another video has surfaced online of Eric Garner, a New York man who died after an NYPD officer put him in a chokehold in broad daylight on Thursday.
In the new video, Staten Island resident, 43-year-old Garner, appears unconscious or dead as officers stand around him, keeping him rolled onto his side.
WARNING: This video may be disturbing to some.
Witnesses at the scene remark that police aren't doing enough to save Garner's life in the video.
"Now they're trying to get him an ambulance, after they harassed and slammed him down," a woman taking the video says. "[The] NYPD harassing people for no reason, he didn't do anything at all."
Police said Garner "took a fighting stance" and was resisting an arrest for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes when he suffered a heart attack and died.
Medical examiners have not yet released an official cause of death.
In video obtained exclusively by The New York Daily News, an officer can be seen wrapping his arm around Garner's neck in a chokehold position and throwing him to the ground.
Garner desperately shouts "I can't breathe!" multiple times before going silent.
In the new video, an emergency medical service worker can be seen taking Garner's pulse and attempting to talk to him.
"Why is no one doing CPR?" a witness at the scene asks.
"He's breathing," an officer responds back.
Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed his condolences, and promised a thorough investigation into the incident. In the wake of Garner's death, de Blasio has delayed his ten-day Italian vacation.
