The family of 19-month-old Bounkham Phonesavanh, who was horribly burned by a police stun grenade that was tossed into his playpen, have great news. Because of the excellent medical care he’s received at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, their son is doing much better.

“Boo Boo” as the baby is called by his family, is now receiving physical rehabilitation therapy and the parents have released a new picture of the little boy. According to the family’s lawyer, Boo Boo may have suffered brain damage from his traumatic injury and has lost the use of one of his lungs.
