There is another way to look at this question: There is nothing different about the death of people who died in the flood and people who have died throughout history in the millenia since. The maximum age at death recorded in the Bible is 969 years, for Methuselah. To Noah, God revealed that he would henceforth limit the maximum lifespan for humans to 120 ...

This question asks for "all denominations", which isn't generally allowed. The resulting "correct answer" would either be a large collection of individual answers, one for each denomination, or a single answer that covers them all and is incredibly wrong.

I don't know if it really qualifies as a justification, but what if those children died so they could go to Heaven immediately upon their death? Was that cruelty or blessing? As a Reformed Baptist I believe in the view that those who die before reaching an age of discretion thus die without deliberately sinning. Such souls go to Heaven. They go to Heaven ...

Adding to David Stratton's very good answer, consider also that there is no instance recorded in the Scriptures of a person being saved after death.
