A G4S security guard told an inquest jury how he had restrained an Angolan deportee, who later died, on a plane at Heathrow airport. Stuart Tribelnig said he had grabbed Jimmy Mubenga in a bearhug after the Angolan had ripped his shirt and knocked him backwards.
Mr Tribelnig and two colleagues managed to handcuff Mr Mubenga. But after he was handcuffed, the deportee became unresponsive. Mr Tribelnig said he could not remember Mr Mubenga saying he could not breathe.
It was then realised that he was ill but he later died in hospital.
An inquest has heard that a man died after being restrained by security guards on board a plane as he was being deported.
Jimmy Mubenga, who was 46, became ill on the aircraft as it prepared to leave Heathrow in October 2010 and died later in hospital.

Glen Goodman has the full story.
Three years ago, a deportee Jimmy Mubenga died on board a British Airways flight at Heathrow after being restrained by security guards. Ronke Phillips reports.
The inquest jury has heard that Jimmy Mubenga died after a struggle on board the plane.
Karon Monaghan QC, Assistant Deputy Coroner for Hammersmith and Fulham, said that three Detention Custody Officers - Terence Hughes, Stuart Tribelnig and Colin Kaler - restrained him after he went to the toilet.
She said: "A struggle ensued between Mr Mubenga and the three DCOs (Detention Custody Officers). Mr Mubenga was then restrained, handcuffed and placed in a seat."
She went on: "At some point it appears that he fell silent and unresponsive, and it became clear that something was wrong."
She said that Mr Mubenga was being deported back to Angola after serving a two-year prison sentence for assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The inquest at Isleworth Crown Court is expected to last eight weeks.
An inquest is starting today at Isleworth Crown Court to examine why a 46 year-old man died while he was being deported on an aircraft at Heathrow Airport. Jimmy Mubenga was being sent back to Angola but he died after being restrained by guards from the private firm G4S.

A House of Commons Transport committee report has rejected the Mayor's plans for a new hub airport in the Thames Estuary - saying the public expense would be too great.
MPs also say transport infrastructure wouldn't cope and wildlife habitats would be affected. Instead, it urges the Government to allow expansion at Heathrow with a third, and possibly fourth, runway.
But not everyone's convinced.

Plans for a new island airport off the Essex coast have been rejected by MPs. Members of the Parliamentary Transport Committee say the proposals, backed by London Mayor Boris Johnson, are unworkable without public investment and would also have an impact on wildlife in the Thames estuary.
The committee also recommended at least one new runway at Heathrow and better rail links to Stansted Airport in Essex. Emma Baker spoke to travel expert Simon Calder asking him what the news means for our other airports in the East.
Boris Johnson has defended his idea of building an island in the Thames Estuary, saying that a third runway at Heathrow would be "obsolete" by the time it was built.
He added that today's report made plain that advocates of this solution were effectively calling for a four-runway Heathrow, which he said would be "environmentally and politically undeliverable".
