"If I would've just not tooken the bill, this could've been avoided", Mr Martin lamented, joining the burgeoning list of witnesses who expressed a sense of helplessness and lingering guilt over Floyd's death.
Earlier, a Minneapolis firefighter who wept Tuesday as she recalled being prevented from using her EMT training to help Floyd returned to the stand briefly Wednesday. In March, Floyd spent time in a hospital became of a possible overdose.
The officer is facing charges of murder and manslaughter and has pleaded not guilty. Floyd died at the scene.
Observers of the trial say Wednesday's footage may be an attempt by prosecutors to deal with the allegation that drugs played a part in his death.

Defense attorney Eric Nelson asked Ross details about the pills they took last Spring, and what kind of effect they had on her and Floyd.
He rejected defence suggestions that he and other bystanders' interactions with police had been threatening to the officers there. When he was taken outside, Floyd told the officer that he "didn't know what was going on" and that he was "scared as f**k".
