Additionally, both children were "heavily soiled" and crying.
The children were turned over to CPS and their guardian Priscilla Salais was taken into custody on two counts of child endangerment.
The children’s mother told KSAT that Salais is their stepmother. The kids' parents are reportedly being investigated by Child Protective Services for alleged abuse, and they were temporarily placed in Salais' care. WOAI-TV reports CPS determined their mother was an "inherent risk" to the children, so they were put in foster care.
San Antonio Police shared a video of Salais' walk into custody, and she denied the charges against her. According to KSAT, Salais said people need to get their "facts straight" about the case and she did not do anything wrong.
