New York Man Dies After Chokehold By Police

Confronted by police trying to arrest him for allegedly selling illegal cigarettes, Eric Garner raised both hands in the air and, with passive defiance, told the officers not to touch him. Seconds later, the officer behind him grabbed the 350-pound man in a chokehold and pulled him to the sidewalk, rolling him onto his stomach. "I can't breathe! I can't breathe!" Garner said repeatedly, his cries muffled into the pavement. A video of the Thursday skirmish shows the Staten Island man lying on the ground motionless after the incident. According to CNN affiliate WCBS, an asthmatic Garner was later declared dead at a nearby hospital. Police said he suffered a heart attack and died en route to the hospital.
