Police in New Hampshire say they arrested two women who appeared drunk and were “barely able to stand” at a mall to care for their babies. One woman was lying in a puddle while holding her child above her head.

The women admitted that they consumed alcohol when they were found in a parking lot at the Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem. Both were charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Twenty-two-year-old Baylie Lecolst, of Salem, and 24-year-old Amber Giordano, of Hampstead, were released on bail and are scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 31.

The infants were released to the custody of family members.
