Name: Dylan Martin Davis.
Died: November 17, 2017.
Age at death: 11.
Cause of death: Restraint-related; suffocated.
Location: Georgetown, Ohio, USA.
Upon coming home from school, Dylan had a meltdown. His step-grandfather, who weighed more than four times Dylan’s weight, restrained him by sitting on him until Dylan could not breathe. He died of positional asphyxia.
His step-grandfather pleaded guilty to reckless homicide, but then was allowed to withdraw his plea and was found innocent because the court ruled that he could not know that a 400-pound man sitting on an 11-year-old boy could crush him to death.
