Timeline: 911 calls, officers’ response to Kyle Plush death

Kyle Plush, 16, died when a third-row bench seat fatally crushed him in his 2004 Honda Odyssey.

Plush called 911 twice pleading for help. The 911 operator has been placed on administrative leave because she didn’t pass along the make, model or color of the van to officers who responded, Police Chief Eliot Isaac said Thursday.
