Security guard found Dover bleeding on the floor

WAYNE Dover was "bleeding from every orifice in his head" after a fight outside The Factory nightclub, a security guard has told a court.

Mr Dover died following a fight at the Maroochydore nightclub in November 2013.

Nightclub security guard Sean Hancock told the Brisbane Supreme Court he rushed to the scene of the fight and pulled a man away from Mr Dover.

He said he found Mr Dover on the timber flooring covered in blood and severe damage around his eye.

"He was pretty much bleeding from every orifice in his head. His eyes, ears, nose, mouth," Mr Hancock said.

Mr Hancock said he placed Mr Dover in the recovery position and phoned 000. He said Mr Dover had a weak pulse and was breathing shallowly.

Matthew John Hill and brothers Wade Leigh Goldsworthy and Blake Nathan Goldsworthy have pleaded not guilty to Mr Dover's manslaughter.

Mr Hancock told the court he saw a dreadlocked man, who prosecutors argue was Wade Goldsworthy, and a man with a shaved head, argued to be Blake Goldsworthy, involved in the fight that killed Mr Dover.

Mr Hancock said he saw three men "aggressively approach" Mr Dover and saw punching and kicking in the fight.

But after watching CCTV footage during cross-examination Mr Hancock admitted he was wrong about the group approaching Mr Dover together.

Wade Goldsworthy's lawyer Simon Lewis also pointed out that Mr Hancock had never mentioned seeing kicking to police or at earlier court hearings.

Mr Hancock said he had remembered seeing kicks after giving the police statement but agreed it "was possible" his memory had been influenced by other people saying they saw kicking during the fight.

Mr Dover died from a severed artery in his neck.

The trial will continue over the coming weeks.
