A terrible situation has unfolded in Cincinnati after a teen was trapped in his van and ultimately died. The incident occurred on Tuesday.
Kyle Plush called 911 twice after somehow becoming pinned under the third-row seat in his van. It was reported that the 16-year-old was trying to reach his tennis equipment when the seat flipped.
Plush was able to tell dispatchers where he was located during the call but the dispatcher failed to relay that information to the additional officers who were at the scene, reported Fox News. During the call, Plush explained to Smith the call was not a joke.
"I am trapped inside my gold Honda Odyssey van in the parking lot of the Seven Hills...Send officers immediately," Plush begged. "I’m almost dead.”
He also reportedly told dispatchers to tell his mother that he loved her.
"This young man was crying out for help and we were not able to get information to officers on the scene," said the Cincinnati Police Chief.
Honda has responded to the event since hearing the tragic news.
“Honda has seen media reports regarding the tragic death of a teenager in a 2004 Honda Odyssey in Cincinnati, Ohio,” the company said. “Our hearts go out to the victim’s family during this difficult time. Honda does not have any specific information from which to definitively determine what occurred in this incident. We can confirm that there were no seat-related recalls affecting the 2004 Honda Odyssey.”
