Robert Dziekanski was calm and respectful in the hours leading to his death at Vancouver International Airport, an immigration officer told an inquiry yesterday.

Kelly McKenzie’s account goes against police claims that the Polish immigrant was agitated and erratic as he waited to meet up with his mom on Oct. 14, 2007, according to CBC News.

Another officer, Alexandra Currie, said she communicated with Dzienkanski using hand gestures during the roughly 10 hours he spent wandering around YVR. Dziekanski, who didn’t speak English, signaled he had fallen asleep at some point, Currie said.

This second phase of the Braidwood Inquiry aims to determine what happened in the hours leading to Dziekanski being Tasered multiple times by four RCMP officers and dying shortly after.
