posted by Randall

Bounkham Phonesavanh It was a drug raid gone wrong. Now a 19-month old baby is in a coma because of it, reports ABC News.

Sheriff deputies raided a home in Habersham County, Georgia where they say an informant told them a drug deal had been conducted earlier.

A deputy threw a flash grenade and it landed in the baby’s portable crib where he was sleeping.

Bounkham Phonesavanh is in a medically induced coma.

“It was a big flash, a loud bang, a bunch of yelling, and my son screaming,” the boy’s mom, Alecia Phonesavanh, 27, said.

“They lied to me. They kept telling me my son was okay,” she said. “When I saw his playpen I just about threw up. I got really sick, I was so scared.”

Police say they did not realize children were present, and had they did, would have been more careful.
