There'd better be a LOT more to this story

Officers entered the home and cleared the room, not seeing anyone inside.

The small room was cluttered with clothing and furniture items, including old mattresses leaning against a wall.

With no one in sight, a less lethal distraction device was deployed by an officer.

Officers used a noise-flash diversion product.

As the officer was backing out of the room, a 2-year-old child, who is believed to have been hiding in the mattresses, began walking toward the device as it was activated.
Third-degree burns on the kid.
If they didn't see anyone, why the flash-bang?  What was the reason for it? 

And notice the new language: 'less lethal distraction device', 'noise-flash diversion product'.  Because it sounds so much less than calling it what it is.
