NORTH AMITYVILLE, New York (PIX11) – A family got a scare Thursday after a man noticed his wife and two kids losing consciousness as their Mitsubishi filled with carbon monoxide fumes, according to Suffolk County police.
He pulled over outside a daycare on Parkway Avenue in North Amityville at 3:55 p.m. A Good Samaritan helped by breathing into the mouths of the two boys, 22 and 8 months old, and members of the East Farmingdale Fire Dept. administered oxygen.
All three began breathing and were taken to a local hospital, along with the father, for further tests. The 1999 Mitsubishi appeared to have an exhaust problem and was impounded for a safety check.
No criminality is suspected.
