CHICAGO (WGN) –  Ten children were taken to hospitals after a waitress accidentally served them alcohol at a pizza place in the Little Village area of Chicago.

It happened just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, at a “Home Run Inn” restaurant in the 4200 block of West 31st Street. The children were 10-years-old or younger, and they were part of a birthday party.

A woman who was there with her son said parents called police after several servers took the children’s drinks away without explaining why.

The parents smelled the drinks and realized they had alcohol.

Police say several children drank the alcohol, and that the waitress didn’t intend to serve it.

They are all in good-to-fair condition.
