WHEATLAND, N.Y. (AP) – Police say four upstate New York teenagers who tried to hold their breath for the time it took their car to go a third of a mile were hurt when the driver fainted.

Authorities say three 19-year-old men and a 16-year-old boy were traveling together late Monday night when they decided to try to hold their breath while riding through Garbutt, a rural Rochester-area hamlet that’s just three-tenths of a mile long.

Monroe County sheriff’s deputies say 19-year-old Bryan Parslow of Caledonia fainted while driving and his car hit a boulder.

Parslow was ticketed for failing to stay in his lane. He’s a paraplegic for whom the car was specially equipped to drive.

All four teens were treated at a hospital and released.
