A dramatic new Metropolitan Police Department bodycam video shows how officers and medics from three police agencies worked for 15 minutes to try to revive a lifeless Rosanne Boyland after she was dragged feet-first through the Lower West Terrace tunnel on Jan. 6, 2021.

The urgent efforts to restart Boyland’s heart were a stark contrast to the previous 10 minutes outside the tunnel, where protesters begged police for medical help, but their pleas were ignored. Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Georgia, was the last of four people who died at the U.S. Capitol that day.

The bodycam video of MPD Officer Sarah Beaver, obtained by The Epoch Times, provides the closest and most detailed view of the life-saving efforts inside the tunnel entrance to the U.S. Capitol just after 4:30 p.m.

A group that included tactical officers from U.S. Park Police, MPD, and U.S. Capitol Police began CPR.

Radio traffic from U.S. Capitol Police, also obtained by The Epoch Times, adds detail to the tragic story of Boyland, one of four supporters of President Donald Trump who died at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

According to CCTV security video released in 2021, Boyland walked into the tunnel at about 4:18 p.m. amid a tightly packed crowd.

Gas Deployed by Police

A short time later, a cloud of gas deployed by police displaced the oxygen in the tunnel, witnesses said. That set off a stampede of protesters desperate to get outside for air.

Officer Beaver stood inside the double doors of the Capitol. Her bodycam captured the gas deployment at 4:20 p.m. Some of the gas blew backward into the Capitol.

The video also shows an officer firing pepper balls into the crowd just before the stampede.

Boyland was one of the first in the crowd to go down. She became trapped as other protesters fell on her or were pushed by police, according to eyewitnesses.

At 4:21 p.m., Beaver’s bodycam captured the voice of a man shouting, “Oh God, a woman’s down!”

About 30 seconds later, the same voice shouted, “A woman’s being trampled!”
