Poughkeepsie Teens Wear Homemade Hazmat Suits To Play Basketball
Teens from Poughkeepsie are getting national attention for wearing what looks like hazmat suits to play basketball.
Seven teens played basketball at a Poughkeepsie park for over an hour wearing white hazmat suits, respirators and nitrile gloves, the New York Times reports.
"We thought we would get a good laugh out of it for ourselves and the people around us, but we did it to protect ourselves and have fun,” Tre Mayo told the New York Times.
The group played three-on-three games for about 90 minutes while about 40 people watched and took photos.
