Two Boynton Beach, Florida mothers have been taken into custody after overdosing on heroin in a vehicle while their infant children sat in the backseat, Thursday.

It was shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday and, according to an arrest report, O'Connor, 27, of Coral Springs just bought $60 worth of heroin while "hanging out" with June Schweinhart, 28, of Lake Worth.

Police said O'Connor started shaking and became unresponsive after they left the parking garage where they snorted the drugs and remembered Scheweinhart yelling, "Oh my God".

They told local authorities that they met in a drug treatment program, bonding during their pregnancies - their babies were born four days apart - and that O'Connor had gotten the drugs from her old dealer.

The pair chose to buy $60 worth of heroin while two small infants, ages 1 month and 2 months, were in the vehicle, police said. O'Connor and Schweinhart were charged with child neglect and taken to jail after being released from the hospital.

"Officers brought the babies back to the police department, where they were snuggled for several hours", the police wrote.

O'Connor has since been released on a $4,500 bond, while Schweinhart is still in custody on a $3,000 bond.

O'Connor had let Schweinhart drive her auto because she believed the mother would be able to drive better under the influence, she said to police.
