Sometimes, there’s nothing we can do about certain tragedies. However, sometimes, that is simply not true. 16-year-old Kyle Plush died, allegedly, because of the 911 operator outrageous negligence.
How it happened?
The horrific tragedy happened in Cincinnati, Ohio. Reportedly, Kyle Plush died in his van because of asphyxiation caused by chest compression.
The boy called 911 twice with the help of voice activation of Siri and provided the dispatcher with needed information: location, model, and color of his van, where he was stuck and couldn’t breathe.
He begged for help and said he probably had not much time left. Kyle repeated twice that the call was not a joke. The desperate boy asked to send a message to his mother:
I probably don’t have much time left, so tell my mom that I love her if I die.
It was too late
Officers arrived a few minutes later at the Seven Hills School parking lot. However, they didn’t know what they were looking for. Unfortunately, they didn’t find Kyle. The report states that the dispatcher didn’t provide the officers with the vital information about the car.
