The Lehigh Tunnel on the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike seems the perfect place to hold a breath-holding contest, or so thought a busload of Boy Scouts. The winner of the competition was 16-year-old Gregg Kuhn of Coatesville. However, his victory was not what you would call glorious. Gregg was not able to regain his normal breathing rhythm and suffered muscle spasms. The driver of the bus continued to the Lehigh Valley exit and summoned a turnpike ambulance.
