Brisbane has enlisted a submission from Dr Damian Amato – a neurologist from Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital.

He says Berry is in a very vulnerable position, particularly with Oliver's hands across his chest and shoulders and with his right forearm pushing down on his throat.

"The danger of that is obstruction of his airway and reducing oxygen supply to the brain," Dr Amato said.

"It's obvious from the footage he's not moving in one single manner, but flailing all limbs to get Oliver off him and relieve pressure from his airway.

"He was protecting himself." – Michael Whiting
