Witness Summary:

Rochefort arrived on the scene and grabbed the equipment. Multiple officers and were bystanders present. Trayvon was laying on his back with officers doing CPR. He checked for a pulse, but there was none. He never heard any statements from Martin. He was never conscious. He may have assisted with the monitor to check for a heart rhythmn. Michael Brandy was the primary paramedic. He says he is not sure if Brandy “ran a strip” on Trayvon with the heart monitor. He doesn’t remember clothes, but he thinks he remembers a sweatshirt. He, also, remembers a bullet hole in his chest somewhere. He did not assist with aid to Zimmerman.

    If by “ran a strip” he means put an electrode on his chest…I think the ME report lists an electrode.

  • skeptical

    I would.think a strip is that printout a heart monitor make that shows near the a t-shirt or flatline.

  • skeptical

    that is supposed to say heartbeat, not near.a.t-shirt
