Two toddlers were injured after climbing into a bounce house that was not properly secured before a gust of wind blew it 50 to 60 feet. The incident happened at Sullivan Farm in Nashua, New Hampshire early Sunday afternoon. The first child, a 2-year-old boy, was critically injured and flown to Tuft’s Medical in Boston. The second boy injured is a 3-year-old. He was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital and is expected to be OK.
Gary Bergeron, a co-farmer at Sullivan Farm, stated that the bounce house had been purchased a few days earlier with no stakes and was set up to dry out from the previous week’s rain. According to Bergeron, he blocked the ride off with a few hay bales. However, Ron Perry, the father of one of the boys, asked a farm volunteer how much the bounce house was, and the volunteer said that it was open and free of charge. There were no signs indicating that it was closed.
