Police were unable to wake the child despite desperately trying to for several minutes.

Both Denisse and Pablo were later searched and found to have drugs in their possession, however Pablo claimed his were painkillers.
The little girl’s condition is currently unknown.
According to court documents, Pablo told police that it was “his wife’s birthday and he was stupid to buy drugs” and that “he regretted doing this to his wife and that he would take responsibility completely”.
He remains held in police custody, however his wife was released.
The Department of Child Services has been informed of the incident, and the parents are not allowed to see their daughter.
