A teenager died after becoming stuck in the cargo area of a 2004 Honda Odyssey minivan on Tuesday, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Kyle Plush, a 16-year-old high school student from Ohio, was reportedly reaching into the cargo area to retrieve tennis equipment, with his knee on a third-row bench seat, when the seat flipped over and trapped him in the cargo area upside down. Plush reportedly made two 911 calls before he died of asphyxia by chest compression.

The Enquirer investigated a vehicle of the same make, model, and year as the one used by Plush and found that the third-row bench can flip backward without much pressure when a latch on the back of the bench isn't secured. When the latch is secured, the seat did not move during the Enquirer's test.
