Two teenagers from the Pittsburgh area are facing accusations that they are in danger of children who allegedly allowed the baby to take a breath from a vaping device and posted his video on social networks.
The alleged incident occurred when a 17-year-old girl from Seward, Westmoreland County, was babysitting a two-year-old boy in a residence in St. Clair, on January 9, according to Pennsylvania police.
Police said the child grabbed the vape device from the nightstand and began to inhale it. The 17-year-old and 18-year-old woman Arma, who was also present, allegedly allowed the boy to continue using him.
At least one teenager began recording the incident, according to police. Then the video was posted on Snapchat.
The video revealed that the teens were laughing while the boy was using the device, according to CNN, which received the video from the branch radio station. After inhaling, the boy coughed and fell.
It is believed that a periodontal device contains 3% nicotine, but does not contain THC, a psychoactive substance found in marijuana. Two teenagers are not related to the boy.
After receiving feedback on the video, police said they had warned the parents of the boy who did not know about the incident. The video was also reported to Children’s and Youth Services.
Teenagers were not released by the police, but Armagh’s Unified School District confirmed to CNN that teenagers are students within the district.
