(Scroll down for video) A man and his girlfriend were arrested after his son arrived at a hospital while under the influence of alcohol.

25-year-old Tyriese Howard and his girlfriend, 23-year-old Breya Allen, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, both raised his three children.

Sadly, the kids were subjected to horrific abuse. The children, who are 3, 5 and 6-years-old, were now placed with the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD).

According to police, the 5-year-old boy was taken to a hospital, where doctors found that he had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit.

The boy told officers that he was very thirsty so his parents gave him mouthwash to drink. The boy said that on other occasions, he drank water from the toilet bowl.

The boy showed signs of abuse all over his body. He and his siblings told police that their “mom” and dad punched them in the face and beat them with all kinds of household item such as cords, hangers, belts, spatulas and switches.

The kids said that were warned not to tell anyone because “snitches get switches.”

Both are now being held on $50,000 bond.
