The parents of the 2-year-old girl were charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The parents of a 2-year-old girl have been locked up after allegedly overdosing in front of the toddler at their home near the Ridgewood/Bushwick border this past weekend, cops said.

According to police, officers from the 83rd Precinct were called to a home on Grove Street near Wyckoff Avenue at approximately 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 22, where they found 28-year-old Andrea Ortiz passed out in the street from an apparent drug overdose.

The Daily News reported that medics administered Naloxone — a medication used to block the effects of opioid use, especially overdoses — to Ortiz and transported her to an area hospital.

At the hospital Ortiz alerted police that her daughter was missing.

Upon further investigation, police found the 2-year-old girl at Ortiz’s apartment where they found the child’s father, 46-year-old Saturino Arriaga-Ramirez, also unresponsive due to an apparent overdoes. He was also given Naloxone and revived, law enforcement agents said.

The child was found unharmed.

Police arrested both Ortiz and Arriaga-Ramirez and charged them with endangering the welfare of a child.

The city’s Administration of Child Services (ACS) has been notified of the incident and are conducting an investigation, police added.

Conduct investigation? The evidence is sufficient to take that child away from them. They are not capable of raising children
