CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - By now, you've probably heard about the tragic death of a 16-year-old boy from Anderson Township.
Kyle Plush died Tuesday, according to the police report, crushed by his van's third-row seat.
He called 9-1-1 for help -- twice -- to let emergency workers know he was trapped. but officers did not find him.
This tragedy has been ruled accidental, but it does raise three important questions:
- 1) Was there a problem with the vehicle? The report says Plush leaned over the third-row seats to get to his tennis gear -- it overturned and trapped him.
- 2) Did the 9-1-1 system fail? Did the operators give all the information available to the police?
- 3) Did police take the call seriously and search hard enough for the teen?
Every day we learn more information about the case -- hopefully, the family will get the answers they need soon.
But for now, our sympathy goes out to the grieving family, friends, the Seven Hills school and the community mourning Kyle.
