TIMELINE: 911 calls, officers’ response to Kyle Plush death
Although he lived with spinal developmental problems and other medical issues that impeded his physical mobility, he loved sports, even participating in athletics at Seven Hills School as a member of the tennis team.
Investigators believe Plush may have been retrieving a tennis racquet from his Honda Odyssey when he became trapped inside the van, where he suffocated due to chest compression, according to WCPO.
Hamilton County prosecutors are launching a full investigation to determine exactly what happened when Plush, who made two 911 calls begging for help, was not immediately responded to and reportedly ignored by the 911 operator.
In the last moments of his life, Plush told the operator: "Tell my mom I love her."
