The teen initially was on his stomach but managed to roll onto his back. One officer entwined Mylo's legs with his own, a wrestling move known as a reverse grapevine. The officer grabbed the back of Mylo's head. He pulled down hard, forcing Mylo's chin tight against the teen's own chest. That made it difficult for Mylo to open his mouth and reduced the officers' risk of being bitten by him. They remained in that position while the other officers tried to pin Mylo's arms. The teen still was talking. Then, officers reported, he suddenly slipped into unconsciousness. Handcuffs were snapped around his wrists. Officers bound his feet with nylon straps. When his family read the reports later, it bothered them that one of the restraints used was the leash a police dog handler had been carrying in her uniform pocket. Mylo was placed on a paramedic's backboard and strapped down. The officers told the aid crew waiting nearby that Mylo, though unconscious, had a pulse and was still breathing. The paramedics moved in and quickly realized that wasn't so. They got Mylo's heart pumping and restored his breathing. An ambulance raced him to the hospital, where doctors determined his brain had died. There was nothing doctors could do. Four days later, Mylo took his last breath.http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20080814/NEWS010309/708681372N/ASnohomish WA - WashingtonEverett WA - Washington2002
