Officers executing a drug raid on a residence toss a diversionary device into the crib where a 19 month old boy lay sleeping alongside his family in an acquaintance’s home they were staying in temporarily. The toddler was critically injured and has been placed in a medically induced coma.
None of the family members have been implicated in the drug sales and the individual who sold drugs to the police informant was not home at the time of the raid. No drugs were found during the raid and there was no resistance from the family Alecia Phonesavanh, the toddler’s mother, explains.
Everybody was asleep. It’s not like anyone was trying to fight.
