I just heard about this whole thing yesterday on Facebook where people were complaining about the 911 call being on YouTube. As far as I know it got removed from there, but I don't feel like reading through all the posts on this thread and there isn't probably much useful info about the situation anyways on here, so can someone tell me where this girl ended up being found? Such a sad thing for anyone to have to die so young. RIP.

No, don't call the dog warden, at least with 911 she got someone to answer the phone, you're shit outta luck with getting Rich to answer the phone.

Then that would make sense and you should have stated that with your initial comment to begin with instead of putting it out there like you were seeking to stir up drama and grab some attention over such a tragedy, and yes despite what any of you think, no matter how it happened this is a tragedy. Sorry if I sound harsh but if it were my child this happened to I would want someone to do the same for me, even if it is on a stupid forum of gossip queens.

To everyone reading this, I think this is not the time to assign blame when emotions are running high. Now is the time to educate people, If you are ever in this situation what would you do???? Speaking from professional experience let me share with you, When a vehicle is submerged the water pressure will prevent you from opening the doors and lots of cars with electric windows will not work. Your best bet it to get a very inexpensive tool called a Glass Breaker, It is small enough to put in a womans purse or carry on your person at all times, I have seen pens with this feature incoorperated in them, Always break out your side window as the windshield is made with glue for safety, The first thing is to STAY CALM which is very,very hard to do in this or any other life threatening situation but YOUR LIFE depends on it, Please look into this and maybe we can prevent and of these tragedies in the future...Oh and by the way i am in no way,shape or form associated with these tools but have used them in my professional career with huge success. I pray for the Family and friends of this girl, God be with you.

My guess is u people are messed up come on we are talking about a 17 year old girl in a fricken pond upside down late at night my guess it's pitch black out so that being said underwater the last I new didn't have spot lights sooooo don't ya all think the poor thing got her seat belt off but couldn't tell the front of the car from the back of the car. I'm a mother of teenagers and until this day I never even explained to my kids what do do in this situation come on people its not rocket scientist and open ur eyes I'm 36 and if this happened to me I'm not sure I would know what to do when it's black as the ace of spades and can't see shit. I purchased my kids a device I'm having mounted right on the door hammer on one end cutting device on the other and teaching them what to do in this situation something I wouldn't of done till now. Rest in piece bri and know u will be missed alot. I didn't know u but my kids did.

I really believe that unless you are in this type of a situation you do not know what you would do. We can all sit around and say I would do this and that. But remember she was only 17, so put yourself in a 17 year olds mind and remember it was dark under water, i might have had my cell phone right beside me or between my legs, we do not know what she was thinking or doing just that she made the 911 call, I would too if I had my phone handy, she only has had maybe a year or so driving experience not much for being in a pond upside down. So everyone stop saying what you would do unless you are willing to go put yourself in a pond upside down in a car at night, You go do it and come tell us how it worked out for you. Let it go people. Let the family morn in peace and drop this stuff. Grow up and have some heart. Why don't you all start a group and show kids how to survive in a car under water, make a tragedy into a helpful thing for others. Make this death be a eye opener for others, we have a lot of ponds and rivers around here, maybe we as a community need to reach out to others and do what we can to teach people how to survive. Just a thought.

I agree with Rhonda! In extreme panic mode no one knows for sure what they would do! Especially put in that situation while you're still basically a kid! I thought she showed good presents of mind to make the 911 call personally! I don't always carry mine in my purse! Sometimes I stick it in a coat pocket (that zips), my jeans pocket, or my cup holder! As far as "cranking" the window down (as was mentioned) how many cars even have "crank" windows now days? I don't think you have to be submerged in water too long before the power is affected, even if you thought to switch it to AC if the motor stopped. I simply do NOT understand WHY this girl must constantly be defended as if she were some criminal! My God! I guess it makes some people feel this "can't happen to them" if they lay it to faults of the victim! There is a vast array of factors that can come into play in drastic emergencies, so think again! All you can do is be as prepared as possible, HOPE your reactions are the right ones when time is that critical, and hope for the best!

Frankly,(aside from opening the window, which of course would be the best course of action, IF that is even possible) I myself would have thought the cell phone call to be a good second option due to the tracking! From watching TV and movies I had the (false) impression if you were kidnapped or lost calling out on a cell phone would mean almost instant GPS tracking to ones location. This incident revealed that is not really the case.

95 neon probably had crank windows. And as I understand it, to track you have to leave the phone on and active. Which would have been fine except after finding her phone after a dramatic wreck how much time did she have to make the call? Not saying I would have done any better but having the advantage of time to think and reason this out, she was fighting odds stacked pretty tall.

just saying wrote:
She also had fire dept from oc and rockford looking all over,up and down 118 between oc and rockford....nowhere near where that girl was found. Nobody could seem to locate where she was for what seemed like forever..verizon couldn't pinpoint her location, just say where the last tower she passed by was...and they were just guessing.....they really screwed up on this one.
That's only half true once Verizon was contacted (10min after call dropped) vw dispatcher was informed it was within 3 miles of county line so she contacted the other counties dispatcher who dispatched 2 departments. The reason oc and Rockford was sent out is because her parents thought she was at the vw cinemas and headed home.( they did more than needed just incase)

Even if this poor child would have rolled the window down, she would of had to know to hold her breath and sit there and wait for the car to fill up because the pressure of the water coming in would have forced her back in. Then that would of panicked her then if and I mean if this helpless child would have figured all that out getting to the top then being dark out might not of helped her because the pressure of the car going down would of forced her back down. What a tredgedy that she was dealt. But u can buy a device that u can mount right on ur door it's a hammer on one end and scissors on the other to cut the seat belt. Even that being said going in top up u deffinately have alot more time to do things going bottom up it's almost impossible I would think.

You should feel bad for the rest of your life for that dumb comment you just made you have no idea what goes on in the 911 system or what was going on that night she did all that she could do she called out the departments that was in the coverage area and they searched the best they could if you want to point fingers point them at cell towers next time you run your mouth have a little insight on the situation and sense you think your so great why don't you get off your duff and do her job or the job the volunteers do hope you never need 911 because we are not good enough for you obviously
