(WHAS11)-  A 4-year-old Tennessee girl was rushed to the hospital for a possible head injury, but instead, doctors discovered that the young girl was drunk.

Lisa Lilly says her daughter Taylor fell off her bed while watching a movie, and she could not stand up.
   
Lilly took her daughter, Taylor, to the hospital where doctors found out she had a blood alcohol level of .14, nearly twice the legal limit for adults.
   
Lilly says she later found a half empty bottle of cupcake scented hand sanitizer and thinks that is what Taylor consumed.
   
The solution contains 68 percent alcohol.

Police say parents should always rethink what is inside the house.  Items that may seem safe could actually be dangerous.
