"I'm in desperate need of help", he told her. In one 911 call, he said he was stuck in a van outside the school. "What is the address?"

Plush was there. He called again. "Tell my Mom I love her, if I die", Kyle tells the 911 operator.

He was trapped inside a vehicle in a school parking lot. "Ship officers immediately", Plush pleaded. Seven minutes after the call was made the radio call went out to the police and two officers were assigned to investigate the call. "Something went wrong here and we need to find out why we weren't able to provide that help that we hoped we could have". The Hamilton County coroner says Plush died of asphyxia on Tuesday due to "chest compression" and that it appears to be an accident. Ron Plush discovered his son unresponsive between the third-row bench seat and the van's back door, police said, however they did not describe the position the teen was in and how the seat might have crushed him.

"Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of Kyle", Coroner Lakshmi Sammarco wrote in a press release announcing the findings.

Cincinnati police investigators who reviewed security camera footage also said the deputy looked into many vehicles, including a van, but never made it to the far part of the parking lot. "This matter is very disturbing", Black said.

The deputy and the operator continued talking about Plush's 911 calls and what might have been happening.

"I can't hear you ..."

"On that second 911 call something has gone terribly wrong" Isaac said.

"This is not a joke", the teen told Smith. "It was really a odd call".

"Send help. I'm going to die here", Plush said, shortly before he disconnected after almost three minutes into the call.

The Daily Mail reports that Smith, who answered the second phone call, has twice posted on Facebook to complain about working overtime. Also, on several occasions, he called for "Siri", the intelligent personal assistant on iPhones.

Near the end of his second call, it sounds as if Plush is struggling to breathe. His father found Plush around 9 p.m.

Cops searched the parking lot of his Seven Hills School, but they were unable to initially locate the victim. "While it is unclear if there is wrongdoing by the city in this tragedy, we have a profound responsibility to find out". While they were there, Plush called 911 again and gave specifics on his auto - and his last wishes. He told the dispatcher the teen was "turned over in the seat and stuck there".

"He's been there for a while", he said. Often, it happens when someone falls on the ground or a floor and a weight drops on his or her back.

A Honda spokesman identified the vehicle as a 2004 Honda Odyssey and said there had been no seat-related recalls for that model. Honda said past year it had received 46 reports of minor injuries related to the problem. Plush's family called the police and used Plush's phone to track his location.

A family member reported him missing to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, Chief Isaac said.

"Kyle joined the Seven Hills community in the sixth grade". The school has grief counselors on hand for any student who needs them.
