Twenty-two teenagers aged 16-17 from Hod Hasharon became intoxicated at a club in the Even Yehuda area and four of them were evacuated to the Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba after losing consciousness.

 

One of the youths has already been released after treatment and the three others are being hospitalized. Police have opened an investigation in order to clarify who sold them the alcohol despite the fact that they are underage.

The adolescents arrived at the club via pre-arranged transportation to celebrate at a pre-Purim party.

 

Magen David Adom teams were called to the scene after receiving a report about teens losing consciousness. Eighteen of them were treated on the spot and some of them were taken home by their parents.

 

"It is hard to fathom the children in a situation like this," said one of the paramedics who arrived at the scene. "They were simply drunk and spoke nonsense, even to people who tried helping. It was scary to see and even scarier to know that parents send their kids to parties and don't even know what they are doing there."

 

The police investigation revealed that the teens arrived at the party fully equipped with alcohol and left the club numerous times in order to drink more. The police immediately put an end to the party and asked the club owners to close for the night. "We will check who brought the alcohol there and who sold it to the teens. We will locate and try the person," said the police.

 

The Hod Hasharon Municipality responded by saying, "a police team was alerted during a routine patrol to disperse a group of loitering teens in a public space. The team discovered that it was a private adolescent get-together and that some of them were intoxicated.

 

"In light of the irregular incident, schools were instructed to enhance their alcohol-related pedagogic activities, in cooperation with the adolescents' parents and the Education Ministry. Such activities were already held on Thursday morning."
