THE BROTHER of a British father who died after allegedly being attacked by bouncers and police in Spain has criticized the “brutal, unlawful killing”.
Toby White-Sansom, 35, died five days after the brutal attack on the Magaluf Strip last Thursday.
His family last week shared a horrific photo of him in a hospital bed just before his death.
Toby’s brother Maximilian, a businessman who lives in Dubai but has a holiday home in Majorca, has sentenced the police and bouncers at Boomerang nightclub on Spain’s party island for his death.
Maximilian White claimed his brother was “violently assaulted by bouncers” at the famous nightclub on the night of Monday, July 25.
But he blamed Toby’s death on the actions of Magaluf’s Guardia Civil, who he said had “battered and mistreated” him.
Toby, from Nottingham, reportedly had dinner with his family before visiting Boomerang with his cousin and partner.
The devastated family claims to have video footage showing up to eight police officers kneeling on Toby and squeezing his neck, even as the father of two was unable to breathe or move.
After the attack, he was left in a coma for five days in Son Llatzer Hospital, where he died on Sunday, July 31.
He leaves behind two young daughters, four-year-old Maisie and Poppy, who is not yet one.
Maximilian has now flown private investigators to Spain to secure CCTV footage and cell phone photos and videos of people who saw his brother’s last moment.
The family allege Toby was attacked by nightclub staff, mostly bouncers, before being forcibly stopped by police.
They say the footage shows a crowd loudly protesting the police as they pin him down.
Videos recorded on onlookers’ mobile phones are reported to show police kneeling on Toby, squeezing his chest and neck, before officers tried to resuscitate him when they realized he was not breathing.
Lawyers for Toby’s family claim that medical workers were unable to reach him after being misinformed by the police.
He was also given sedatives when he should have been given adrenaline to get his heart going again.
My beautiful, gentle, foolish, kind and loving brother had brutally extinguished his life
Maximilian’s legal team claims Toby was attacked by nightclub bouncers in Boomerang before being fatally injured and wrongfully murdered by police officers.
They also allege that the actions of the police and bouncers that night were racially motivated.
“If my brother had been a white boy, he would still be alive today,” said Maximilian.
They have denied previous allegations that Toby died of recreational drugs and are insisting that an independent autopsy will show he was killed by police.
A brain hemorrhage expert flown in from the US by Toby’s family claims he suffered brainstem death as a result of his beating.
No nightclub staff would have sought medical attention.
“My brother was attacked by the nightclub staff, but then, brutally, again by police officers whose job should have been to save him,” said Maximilian. “Those cops killed him.”
He continued: “I will devote my time, money and all my efforts to maximum transparency to get justice for Toby. I will sue in every court in Spain and, if necessary, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.”
Maximilian added: “My beautiful, gentle, stupid, kind and loving brother had brutally extinguished his life.
“Toby is said to have survived his attack by nightclub staff. What cost him his life was the attack he received from runaway police officers.”
The Sun Online has approached Magaluf Club Pass, which runs Boomerang nightclub, and Guardia Civil police in the Balaeric Islands for comment.
A police spokesman said: “Guardia Civil can confirm that an investigation into the facts is underway.
“Guardia Civil received an emergency call about a physical assault with a head by a drunk person to the nightclub bouncer.
“When the Guardia Civil police arrived, this man was violent and the police reduced him to be assisted by medical services. He was taken to hospital for treatment.
“There, when he was assisted once, he was arrested for a felony of injury.”
