Cleveland Cops Waited 4 Minutes To Give First Aid To Tamir Rice
After Officer Timothy Lehman shot Tamir Rice, he took cover with his partner, according to a surveillance video, and it was four minutes before the child got first aid.
Rookie officer Timothy Loehman shot Tamir Rice twice in a Cleveland park on Nov. 22, after police mistook the boy’s toy gun for a real one. He died a day later at a hospital.
After the 26-year-old cop delivered the two point-blank-range shots, Loehmann and his partner, Frank Garmback, took cover near their police cruiser, Cleveland.com reported.
The boy lay bleeding in the grass for four minutes before a medically trained FBI agent responded to the scene. Then, one of the cops administered life-saving care until a team of medics showed up three minutes later.[su_csky_ad]
