(NBCNEWS.COM)The jury in the George Zimmerman trial was shown photos of Trayvon Martin’s body and a closeup of a chest wound as a police sergeant testified Tuesday about his attempts to save the teenager’s life.
Sgt. Anthony Raimondo of the Sanford, Fla., police department told jurors how he arrived at the shooting scene, in the evening drizzle, on Feb. 26, 2012, to find Zimmerman handcuffed by another officer.
Martin’s body was on the grass, face-down with his hands under him, Raimondo said.
He said he checked the 17-year-old for a pulse and found none and then turned him over to perform CPR.
“I breathed for Mr. Martin — or I tried to,” Raimondo said, adding that the other officer performed the chest compressions.
