A 16-year-old Westchester girl who relatives said was staying with family in New Jersey was found passed out along with a 29-year-old man in a parked car, its engine running and emergency flashers on, early Christmas morning, police said.

Christian D. Martinez and the girl from Port Chester remained unresponsive after police in New Milford (NJ) who were alerted by a Suez Water employee found them unconscious in a rented Toyota Corolla on company property just after 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Sgt. Justin Fox said.

Police also found five loose Xanax pills in the car, he said.

Responding officers couldn't wake either of them -- and summoned an ambulance that took both to a local hospital, Fox said.

Martinez was charged with illegal possession of prescription drugs and child endangerment. He also received summonses for driving while suspended and under the influence and having drugs in a motor vehicle and was released pending further police action.

New Jersey's Division of Child Protection and Permanency responded to the hospital and eventually turned the girl over to a guardian, Fox said.

The teen had been staying with family in Dumont, a relative said.
