But that Kyle didn't show up for his tennis match. He questioned if the call had been a prank. "I'm at Seven Hills. Send officers immediately. I'm nearly dead", pleaded a boy trapped in his van. They arrived at the scene a few minutes later, but were unable to find the van.

While they were in the parking lot, Plush was making his second 911 call.

"I know no one probably wants to hear this ..." He later asked a dispatcher to "tell my mom I love her if I die".

This time his voice was faint but he gave key information about the type of van he was in - something he hadn't done during the first call. The information is not relayed to the officers. "I'm just about lifeless".

A deputy sent to the scene told dispatch that he couldn't find anyone trapped in a van. He said he was stuck inside his van.

The call went dead; when the operator attempted to call back, it went to voicemail. The terrified teen is heard screaming and later said on the call, "I'm in desperate need of help!" "There's so many cars in that parking lot that they have to hire a deputy to let cars out on Red Bank Road, so it wasn't that simple", Daughtery said.

"This is not a joke", he told an operator.

The deputy searched in at least two parking lots near the school.

Meaning if you don't take action, or are confused by the prompt, you'll give up data you don't want to. But I think we try to move as quickly as possible, and I can follow up or have my team follow up".


A family member found the teen dead in the auto, which was unlocked, an hour later, police said.

Plush's death - although tragic - was an isolated incident, Schoonover said.

Plush died Tuesday after calling 911 twice between 3:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Kyle Plush, 16, a sophomore at Seven Hills School, became increasingly desperate in the calls while the dispatcher struggled to pinpoint his location. "I'm going to die here", he said.

A minivan was removed from the parking lot near the Seven Hills School campus where Kyle Plush was found dead. And he never came home from school... The operator on the second call has been put on leave.

First responders were unable to revive him.

He was retrieving his equipment from the van to play tennis when the ordeal started, a source close to the family told ABC News.

"He was stuck, looks like he was turned over in the seat, he's stuck there".

Police Chief Eliot Isaac said something went "terribly wrong" in Kyle Plush's death. Honda would not have any specific information from which to definitively resolve what occurred on this incident. We owe the Plush family and the public a detailed and comprehensive explanation of everything that has been done, recommendations made and actions taken at the 911 center that could have had any bearing on the practices that may have contributed to this tragedy.

Former director, Jeff Butler, wrote a report again to Isaac two years up to now stating the center "was in trouble" and wished further funding, staffing and better teaching.
