Two New Hampshire mothers are facing child endangerment charges after they were both arrested for being drunk in a public parking lot. Police say they were too intoxicated to care for their children. 

According to Us Weekly, Baylie Lecolst and Amber Giordano were arrested after a police officer found the pair of mothers drunk in the parking lot of the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem, New Hampshire.

A press released from the police department said that the two were "barely able to stand, let alone care for the infants."

Lecolst, 22, was reportedly found laying in a dirty puddle in the parking lot, holding her four-month-old son above her head.

This young girl's family couldn't find a single pharmaceutical drug to stop her horrific seizures. Here is what happened when she tried medical marijuana:

"The puddle was filled with water and motor vehicle fluids," Captain Joel Dolan told Us Weekly.

According to the Boston Globe, the mothers were intoxicated in the parking lot with their two infants. Lecolst's son is four-months-old and Giordano's baby is one-month-old.

Police say the two mothers were equally uncooperative during the booking process. The entire process took four hours, officers say. 

"This is something that should have taken 45 minutes, tops," Dolan said. "But they wouldn't tell us where they lived. They wouldn't give us phone numbers of sober adults to come pick them up. They were giving addresses in towns that didn't exist."

Donald says that at one point, one of the mothers attempted to breast-feed her baby, but the officers "immediately ordered her to stop." The Mayo Clinic says that there is "no level alcohol in breast milk that's considered safe for a baby to drink."

Investigators plan to work with the New Hampshire Department of Children, Youth, and Families as they continue work on the case. 

The infants were eventually released into the custody of each of the women's parents.

Both Lecolst and Giordano have been charged with misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Both women were released on bail and were scheduled to appear in court.

"They made some very poor decisions and put two infants in that much danger," Dolan said. "They could barely take care of themselves at that point, let alone care for two innocent infants."
