ASHEVILLE, N.C. – “She was staggering and kissing everything!”
That’s a mother describing her 2-year-old daughter Gabriela who was accidentally served sangria instead of cranberry at a Texas Roadhouse in Asheville, North Carolina.
At the hospital, doctors diagnosed her with accidental alcohol ingestion.
“You shouldn’t have to be scared for your two-year-old’s life over some careless mistake like that,” Gabriela’s mom said.
Since then, the restaurant has owned up to accidentally serving alcohol to the toddler. In a statement, they also say the family waited to call 911 nearly two hours after Gabriela took a sip of the sangria.
Either way, this is a lesson learned from both sides of the table. “Smell your drink before taking a swig!”
