SEWARD, Penn. (WHDH) — Two Pennsylvania teens are facing criminal charges after police say they recorded a video of a 2-year-old they were caring for vaping nicotine and posted it to Snapchat last week.

Pennsylvania state troopers say charges of endangering the welfare of children are pending against a 17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old girl after an investigation into a video that was posted on Jan. 9.

The pair were allegedly babysitting on Jan-L Street about 8 p.m. on Thursday when they recorded the child coughing after inhaling off of a nicotine vape device and posted the video to Snapchat.

Troopers notified the child’s parents, who were unaware of the video.

The department of Children and Youth Services was also notified.
