The son of the oldest person to die in the Hillsborough disaster has told a court how he saw "sheer terror" on his father's face during the crush.
Gerard Baron junior said he tried to protect his father as the pressure of bodies became unbearable.
Mr Baron said: "My dad turned around to face me and he had a look of just sheer terror on his face... I just said to him that he would be ok."
The witness, who was 26 at the time of the 1989 disaster, went to the Liverpool match with Gerard Baron senior, a 67 year old retired postmaster from Preston.
Speaking via videolink from his home in Australia, Mr Baron jnr said he lost sight of his father after his arms buckled under the pressure.
The inquest heard a St John Ambulance volunteer tried to put an oxygen pipe through the pen fence into the pensioner's mouth but Mr Baron showed no obvious signs of life.

A jury's heard how a victim of the Hillsborough disaster was seen moving after the match was stopped.
Investigators have identified 22 year old David Birtle from Cannock in Staffordshire at the front of pen 3 in video footage from 1989.
"The officers of Operation Resolve have picked out David right in front of the perimeter fence and moving" at nearly 3.08pm, said Christina Lambert QC.
A police officer told Mr Birtle's inquest that he later tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate a casualty thought to be David but was told by another officer that he was wasting his time.
The court heard that Mr Birtle's father James died on Saturday before he had the opportunity to hear today's evidence about his son.

An investigative journalist who helped compile the report which led to the new Hillsborough inquests has died.
Manchester-based television producer Katy Jones died suddenly aged 51.
Jones was an investigative journalist at Granada in the early 90s, where she produced more than 25 programmes for World in Action.
She was also the factual producer of Jimmy McGovern’s Hillsborough drama documentary, for which she won a BAFTA, and produced a number of other award-winning factual dramas.
In 2010, Jones was invited to be part of the Hillsborough Independent Panel, the body established to oversee the release of the documents relating to the 1989 disaster.
The new inquests began after the panel's release of previously unpublished papers relating to the disaster.
“Katy was a hugely talented programme maker and journalist – well known and respected across the industry.
"She was passionate about education and learning and her enthusiasm, energy and determination knew no bounds."
