An FBI agent who made a desperate, last-minute attempt to save the life of Tamir Rice said he was as shocked as anyone that Cleveland Police were unable to properly respond to the 12-year-old boy’s emergency medical needs after officers shot him.

The agent, who has not been identified publicly, said he arrived to find Tamir’s abdomen split open, his small intestines spilling from his body, WKYC.com reports.

The agent looked at officers for help but they stood no chance.

Last week, the city received 800 first-aid kits to address the shortfall, which was exposed by WXYC.

IDG News Service reports that telecom cables were intentionally cut in Fremont, Walnut Creek, Alamo, Berkeley and San Jose 10 times over four separate nights.

“We are hoping for anybody that has seen anything out of the ordinary,” FBI Special Agent Greg Wuthrich said. The perpetrators may have worn uniforms to make themselves look like workers, “so even if it looked like normal uniforms, we’d like to hear so we can vet them out.”
