Teen's death puts Cincinnati 911 center under microscope

CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) -- After the failed response to a teen who was trapped in a vehicle and died after twice calling 911, leaders in Cincinnati plan to tour the city's 911 center Monday afternoon

Cincinnati's 911 system has been plagued with problems over the years and is facing renewed questions following the death of 16-year-old Kyle Plush.

Plush died April 10 after becoming trapped in the back of a minivan in his school parking lot.

Two police officers and a Hamilton County sheriff's deputy searched but didn't find him.

It was Plush's family who found his body nearly six hours after his first 911 call.

Police body camera footage shows officers staying in their cruisers during the search.
