 Bungled SWAT Raid Leaves 12 year old Girl Badly Burned, No Meth Lab FoundAn early morning SWAT team raid on an alleged meth house produced no meth lab or arrests and instead left a 12-year-old girl badly burned by a flashbang grenade.

It all happened at a Billings, Montana home Tuesday around 6am. While the Fasching family slept, a SWAT team assembled outside their home mobilizing a coordinated raid.

The grenade used was of the non-lethal “flash bang” variety, made to disorient and cause temporary vision and hearing impairment through a bright flash and a loud blast. It was positioned into a window by a SWAT member using a metal pole called a “boomstick,” which acts as a detonator once the grenade is in place.

The window SWAT chose, however, was in a room where two girls were sleeping, and due to an unexpected delay the grenade fell off the boomstick and went off right next to a girl that lay sleeping on the floor under the window.

“A simple knock on the door and I would’ve let them in,” the girl’s mother Jackie Fasching told the Billings Gazette.

“She has first- and second-degree burns down the left side of her body and on her arms,” Mrs. Fasching stated. “She’s got severe pain. Every time I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes.”

The Billings police chief called the raid’s damage “totally unforeseen, totally unplanned and extremely regrettable.”
