THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a quick-acting Ventura County deputy saved the life of an 18-year-old man who was apparently trying to kill himself by breathing carbon monoxide.

The Ventura County Star reported Wednesday that the deputy noticed a suspicious vehicle parked at Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks last week.

The vehicle was the only one in the parking lot. When the deputy pulled alongside, he noticed a green hose running from the exhaust pipe to a rear passenger window.

The deputy rushed to open the vehicle's door and pull out the 18-year-old driver. Officials say the man appeared to be in distress from inhaling carbon monoxide fumes.

The driver was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
