Offcier Mackenzie trains in medical support, including CPR.
Mackenzie talks about CPR training, says if the subject doesn't have a pulse that CPR should begin immediately.

Defense cross examination begins.
Defense attorney Eric Nelson asks Mackenzie if CPR could be stopped due to outside factors making the situation not safe.

“That would be reasonable,” she said.
Mackenzie is talking about fentanyl and its dangers, and says she has seen use of it increase.
Defense is asking Officer Mackenzie about Narcan training.

Also asked Mackenzie about the medical condition: excited delirium.

She says, usually, illicit drugs are a contributing factor in excited delirium. #derekchauvintrial
In defense cross examination, Officer Mackenzie says rendering aid to a person can be distracting/difficult if there are environmental concerns. "If you don't feel safe... it's very difficult to focus." Says getting out of the situation is sometimes best.
Officer Machenzie has been excused for the day, but the defense will be calling her back for its case later, likely next week.

Court is in a short break.
