    OH - Kyle Plush, 16, Cincinnati OH Trapped in van, deceased

    Police in Cincinnati, Ohio, are determined to find out what went wrong in the case of a 16-year-old boy who died after being crushed by a minivan seat despite desperately calling 911 for help twice.

    According to audio recordings, Plush called 911 at least twice Tuesday afternoon while he was trapped in the 2002 Honda Odyssey minivan outside Seven Hills School. The third-row seat flipped and had him pinned inside.

    Im going to die here, the sophomore told the dispatcher during his first 911 call, which was placed shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday. I probably dont have much time left. Tell my mom I love her if I die.

    Very tragic. Police didn't seem to have put much effort into finding him. It doesn't sound like anybody was going to see him just by driving by the van, you'd have to really look since he was trapped under the seat.

    "They also talked about whether the whole thing might be a prank. Around the same time Plush was calling 911, the deputy had run into a woman at the school who was getting in his way. He wondered if that woman was up to something – especially since the first officers who looked for the van didn’t find anything awry."

    my God this is tragic. I can not imagine the weight of the guilt surrounding the personnel that mishandled the detailed information, or the officers that failed to locate him....my heart is so heavy for his dad finding him in that state and then later his mom having to hear the call...as a mother myself I can not imagine..t&p for them all.

    It appears from reports that he was trying and using Siri to call 911 as the phone was not within his reach. That is probably why he kept telling the operator he could not hear her talking.

    This poor family, and what I'm reading in reports from his childhood and issues they had with the hospital that missed a Diagnosis years ago and they sued for... so tragic.

    A computer-aided dispatch report contained latitude-longitude coordinates on that call.

    MSM reporting now also on the 911 dispatchers Facebook post where she was complaining just the previous Friday about her job and the hours excetera.

    Not looking good for the city.

    There are other mainstream reports about the prosecutor now getting involved in an investigation in addition to the Sheriff's Department investigation and the Police Department investigation.

    I have the same car and have reached over the backseat so many times. What a freak accident (wonder if this has happen before) with the Honda.

    The real tragedy is the 911 operation IMO. I thought they were trained on 1 sided conversation for help.

    There were other recalls about the seats not locking in place but it wasn't supposed to affect this van.
    However, we also know that they only recall what they are forced to.

    I have a Tahoe with a 3rd row and have had 2 minivans before.
    Whenever that third row is taken out I have to make very sure it's latched back in. It can be tricky.
    I'm not a teenager though, so I go around and open the back instead of climbing over all the rows.
    I also leave the 3rd row folded down if nobody is riding in it for cargo space.

    I still wonder how close (distance wise) his family was. I would be worried 911 wouldn't believe me and I'd call my family to come over. Unless they were not close of course.

    I read about this on the DM.
    Having become a bit "hard-shelled" after so many years, this is one of the few stories to have brought actual tears to my eyes. Too difficult to even imagine the suffering of Kyle, and his family.
    And his Mom -- to know her son's last thoughts and words was that he loved her -- so wonderful, but also excruciatingly painful at the same time. Just heartbreaking.
    RIP Dear Kyle
    He seemed like a really good kid; few and far between these days.

    ....this is also one case in which I hope the family sues. (And wins.)

    Family of Kyle Plush issues statement

    We would like to share a few words about our remarkable son. Kyle embraced life with a passion far beyond his years. We thank God for sharing him with us for over 16 years but we so desperately wish he was here today. We have had many requests from members of the media to talk about what happened to Kyle and what may happen next. We respect the media's need for information and we thank them for continuing to ask questions about what happened to Kyle, as we also have questions and want answers. Right now, every ounce of our family's energy is focused on getting through the next few days as we say goodbye to our son who brought joy to so many and who will never be forgotten by all those who loved him.
    Anyone who ever encountered Kyle knows he lit up a room with his larger than life, funny, smart and positive personality with inclusion of all. His friends know him as a leader with incredible potential that kept them laughing with his wit and innovative mind. He is unforgettable and we, as a family, will make sure he is never forgotten. We ask that the media respect our privacy over the next few days as we say goodbye to our son. In the near future we will have more to say and will share our plans soon, but right now we must come together as a family and help one another get through this. Finally, to those who have reached out with compassion and caring over the loss of Kyle - we cannot thank you enough and wanted to share a few of our favorite photos. Your kindness will help us survive the terrible days ahead.
    Thank you.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.
