Teen's suffocation death in school parking lot sparks investigation into 911 response

Teen's suffocation death in school parking lot sparks investigation into 911 response”

During that call, which lasted several minutes, he sounded weaker and something could be heard creaking in the background as the teen took breaths.

In May 2017, Smith wrote a post "venting" about how working overtime makes her and her co-workers "hate our job".

The second 911 call the 16-year-old made was even more distressing. "That's all. Nothing will change", she wrote. "I'm in desperate need of help!".

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters is now launching a detailed investigation into the matter and hoping to find answers.

The teen, who seemed to be laboring to breathe, repeatedly asked for the police - briefly pausing between each word to try to catch his breath.

911 Audio: "I just looked in a van over there".

Kyle Plush, a student of the Seven Hills School, begged for help while the dispatcher struggled to locate him.

The van was finally located in a parking lot adjacent to the school by Plush's father at about 9 p.m. The search lasted for 11 minutes until they closed the incident.

Plush, a sophomore at the school, had apparently become trapped by a folding seat inside his van, according to WLWT. His voice was faint, but he was able to give information about his location. That was despite a sheriff's deputy on the scene calling the emergency communications center at 3:44 p.m. seeking any additional information so he could do another check of the area after not finding anyone the first time. But he was unable to hear the dispatcher's questions, police said, and a callback to his cellphone after it disconnected went to voicemail. He told the operator Plush was "turned over in the seat and stuck there".

At around 10 p.m., a family member discovered Kyle's lifeless body inside the van.

The teen's death has been ruled accidental from asphyxia due to chest compression. Isaac indicated it could've been an equipment issue or human error.

Thus, Honda said, "it's premature to speculate on any potential actions".

"He was a young man of keen intelligence, good humor, and great courage, and this whole community feels this loss very deeply", the letter stated. "We weren't able to get that information to the officers on the scene and we need to find out why", he said.

"Something has gone terribly wrong", said Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

A Honda spokesperson said the vehicle - a 2004 Odyssey - was never the subject of a seat-related recall and that "our hearts go out to the victim's family during this hard time".

Mercy Montessori, where Kyle went for early education, released a statement saying, "Our Mercy hearts are heavy".

Plush was remembered by his former school's principal as "creative, vibrant, and kind" following news of his passing.

"Kyle's gentle spirit made it a joy for others to be around him", principal Patty Normille said to WCPO in a statement.
