Alcohol accidentally served to children at Illinois restaurant

Ten children, all under the age of ten, were hospitalized after they were accidentally served alcohol at a birthday party in a Chicago-area pizza restaurant.

A waitress served the drinks at a Home Run Inn restaurant in Little Village just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, 2014 according to WGN-TV.

When servers reportedly took the children’s drinks away without explanation, parents smelled the drinks and realized they contained alcohol.  One of the children reportedly said their drink “tasted funny.”

One parent called police. Investigators said several children drank the alcohol and that the incident was an accident.

WGN reported the children were all treated and released from local hospitals, and all of the kids were expected to be okay.
