Man Who Died on Flight was ‘Heavily Restrained’

Man who died on flight was heavily restrained

Jimmy Mubenga collapsed and died after security guards attempted to escort him on a British Airways commercial flight to Angola on Tuesday night.

Four passengers on the aircraft have told the Guardian newspaper that they saw Mubenga, a 46-year-old father of five, being heavily restrained by the guards, who worked for G4S, a private security firm contracted to escort deportees for the Home Office.

Andrew, a 44-year-old from Eastern Europe sitting in row 28, recalled seeing two men pushing down on Mubenga, who was consistently calling for help. Andrew heard cries of “don’t do this” and “they are trying to kill me”. He added: “In the beginning his voice was strong and loud, but with the time passing by the voice was losing its strength.”
