A small bounce house became airborne with three children in it, severely injuring two of them. The bounce house was staked down to the ground, but a strong gust of wind was too much for the plastic stakes. The bounce house flew 15 to 20 feet up in the air before it dropped two of the young victims.
The first was a 6-year-old boy who landed in the middle of a street. He was airlifted an in serious condition with broken bones.
The second child, a 5-year-old boy, fell in a parking lot and hit his head on the back of a parked car. He suffered a serious head injury and is in serious condition. He was also airlifted to the nearest medical center.
The third child, a 10-year-old girl, only suffered scrapes and a minor injury to her shoulder.
The inflatable flew over buildings, and reached as high as 50 feet before falling in the middle of a field behind a local school.
