Newly released bodycam footage shows pro-trump supporters trampling over a dying woman who had brought a "don't tread on me" flag during the siege at Capitol.
Rosanne Boyland, 34, from Georgia, US, was crushed by an angry mob who were charging towards the police officers by the entrance of the building on January 6.
In the disturbing footage taken from one of the four Metropolitan Police officers, the rioters are seen attacking with crutches, a hockey stick and pepper spray.
Boyland is pushed to the ground and her friend, Justin Winchell, can be heard shouting for help.
As rioters tumble over one another, Winchell, who wears a blue hoodie and sunglasses, yells: "Save her!
"She's gonna die! She's dead! I need some help!"
Another rioter appears at the left of the screen is seen bleeding on his head.
Boyland is briefly seen lying on the steps as the officers say: "Move out!"
As the chaos unfolds, the rioters ignore Winchell's plea and force their way through the police and into the Capitol.
Boyland was eventually moved off the steps with the help of others and attended by a paramedic inside the Capitol building.
She was pronounced dead at a hospital at 6pm that night, less than two hours after the footage was filmed.
The clip was played by federal prosecutors in Detroit in a court hearing in the case of Michael Joseph Foy, a Michigan man accused of attacking police officers with a hockey stick.
Boyland's official cause and manner of death are still pending, according to Washington’s chief medical examiner.
