    Whenever I see Kyle’s name I get an awful feeling of sadness thinking back to how he died a slow, horrible death. And I remember how he told the 911 operator to tell his mom he loved her. What an amazing son. RIP Kyle.

    I tried but I can’t copy it either. Nor can I even read the dang thing.

    Okay, back to old school and I will do screenshots. What was new to me was that the operator inappropriately engaged the call device for TTY for a deaf caller, which muted her voice and reduce the volume of him.

    And also she did not replay the call which she could not hear at the time, which in it he had said the make model and location of the car .

    Just so tragic.

    What I am trying to show is the screenshot which has a spreadsheet of what the city said, that everything was done appropriately, and then in the right side of the spreadsheet is what the independent investigator found as what they did wrong.

    There's more to it that perhaps somebody more skilled at downloading can do for us to share this legal document.

    ETA link at Lawsuit: 911 calls from teen who died in van mishandled

    I'm not one who supports frivolous lawsuits, but I believe this one is necessary, and hopefully Force changes and put the sunshine on the problems, and they should damn settle.

    This is a case that really raises my blood pressure it makes me so very very angry.

    It wasn't just the 911 operators. The cops NEVER left their car even if they had been searching in the right parking lot they would not have seen him.

    I see where smart 911 would have been helpful to "enhance" the information but if they knew his name and other stuff.. the cops never would have found him IMO. I doubt they would have called his parents to check on him.

    He had access to Siri, I definitely would have called someone else if 911 was not getting me the help I needed. Say he called his mom and told her he was trapped ETC, it might have played out different. But that's not his fault IMO he was unable to breathe and losing oxygen to his brain I'm sure.

    He called 911 to get help and from the get go no one did their jobs. Even thinking it was a hoax.

    As I said last year, it was a perfect storm of failure by everyone involved (except him and his family of course) that cost this young man his life so needlessly.

    I hate this one. I just so wish he'd called his Mom before calling 911. Then while his Mom was coming to FIND him, he could be calling 911 and so could she. Someone who knows you will almost always take you more seriously and not think it's a prank. Obviously his Mom would have looked a hell of a lot harder for him too!

    I'm old school, I'm not well versed in Siri, will it call any number you verbally give it or does it have to be pre-programmed?

    Uhm. I believe it can dial any number. Good luck getting it to understand it accurately though.

    I'm thinking he'd have had better luck & a better response with a wrong number than he did with 911.

    Yeah. But who could hve guessed that then? Hindsight is 20/20. He was in trouble so he called 911 for help. Just like he was taught.
