Dr. Michael Baden, one of the doctors who performed the autopsy as the behest of Floyd's family, said during a news conference in Minneapolis that Floyd had no underlying medical conditions that contributed to his death.

Baden said Floyd's death was caused pressure on both the man's neck and by the knees of two officers on his back.
