Wisconsin boy hurt by grenade featured on tonight's 20/20

Posted:
JANESVILLE (WAOW) -- The story of a 18-month-old Wisconsin boy who was seriously hurt when a grenade landed in his crib will be featured on "20/20" tonight.

The Janesville family was visiting Georgia in May when a "flash-bang" grenade was thrown in a night time raid by a SWAT team. 

After more than a month in a medically-induced coma and numerous surgeries, "Bou Bou" Phonesavanh left the hospital with more than $1,000,000 in medical bills.

Alecia and Bounkham Phonesavanh say they have no hope in paying the bill. Alecia told "20/20" that the SWAT team "had a faulty search warrant. They raided the wrong house."

Authorities were looking for a drug dealer.

Watch "20/20" at 9:00 p.m. on Newsline 9.
