Boynton Beach police have released the body camera video of what they say is two moms overdosing with their 1- and 2-month-old babies in the back seat.  WPTV was first to request the video.  

WPTV reported exclusively Monday night the 911 call made by one of the moms as the other was unconscious.

In the 2-minute 45-second clip, you see officers responding, one of the mom’s is in the passenger’s seat passed out, and the other is in the back of an ambulance.  A first responder says they administered narcan, the drug commonly used to bring someone back to life after overdosing. 

Near the end of the clip, you see an officer soothing one of the crying babies, offering a pacifier.

Both moms, 27-year-old Kristen O’Conner and 28-year-old June Schweinhart were arrested, charged with child neglect.  The babies were turned over to the Department of Children and Families, who eventually turned them over to family.
