Police tell Eywitness News two girls had to be hospitalized after a Sweet 16 party in White Plains on Sunday and say they may have been drinking and using drugs at a friend's house in Greenburgh before heading to the birthday celebration. The girls, ages 15 and 17, were repotedly transported to the hospital when they showed signs of heavy intoxication during the party at Prophecy Restaurant and Lounge. Prophecy owners say they were shocked that adults dropped off visibly intoxicated teens.

Authorities say one of the girls fell getting out of the car and when she got inside she just started vomiting violently and vomiting blood and an ambulance was called. Two more girls collapsed, at which point they shut down the party.

Police believe the intoxicated teens may be linked to a party on Oxford Lane in Greenburgh that may have involved teens drinking and using drugs. The hosts of the Sweet 16 party, could not be reached for comment.
