‘I’m sinking:’ 911 tapes of fatal car crash released
The 911 calls have been released from a car crash that killed an elderly man last week.
89-year-old Henry Laseke used his cell phone last week to call for help after his car plunged into a pond and just moments before he drown.
The accident happened in Arlington Heights.
Police say Laseke hit some kind of electric utility box, which caused him to spin into the retention pond.
Northwest Central Dispatch officials say they have opened up an investigation to determine if all standards and protocols were met.
