TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The Knoxville Police Department in the US state of Tennessee released body camera footage of an incident that resulted in the death of a woman in police custody.

The video shows officers arresting the woman, who can be heard saying, "I am going to die."

According to the KPD, officers responded to a call about a woman who was causing a disturbance at a hospital. When they arrived, they found the woman, who was described as "non-compliant and combative." The officers placed her under arrest and transported her to the Knox County Detention Center.

 

 

Shortly after arriving at the detention center, the woman became unresponsive and was transported to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
