As the protests against the murder of George Floyd by the police continued into the tenth night on Thursday, a video shows the police in Buffalo, New York, wearing protective clothing that knocks a white-haired man to the ground and appears to be marching past him. The video, which was recorded by a reporter from the local public radio broadcaster WBFO and published on his website and Twitter account, shows the white-haired man approaching a number of officers in combat gear.
One officer presses him with a truncheon and another presses him with his hand.
You hear a crack and then blood drips from the man's head.
The man is not identified.
The video shows the majority of officers marching past, although the officer who hit the man with the truncheon leans over him before another officer moves him away.
You can hear someone calling for a medic.
The radio station reported that two paramedics appeared and helped the man into an ambulance.
Police later said a man was injured after stumbling and falling, the radio station said. WBFO later reported on Twitter that the two officers involved in the incident had been suspended without pay and that an investigation into internal affairs was ongoing.
The injured is in a stable condition in a hospital in Buffalo, the radio station said on Twitter.
