Bounce House Flies Away From Kids' Birthday Party; Two Boys Seriously Injuried

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A kids' party nearly turned tragic on Monday in New York State as a strong gust of wind hurled an inflatable bounce house into the air with multiple children inside.

Two young boys were admitted to the hospital with serious injuries after falling 15 feet from the inflatable structure, which soared 50 feet into the air.

The incident occurred outside an apartment complex when witnesses say a large gust of wind carried the structure and spun it around while it was lifted up.

One of the boys fell on a parked car about 20 feet away while the other boy was reportedly thrown 30-40 feet from the original location of the bounce house.

South Glens Falls, N.Y., police did not release the condition of the boys, but a neighbor told The Post-Star that the boy who fell on the car has a serious head injury.

The other reportedly suffered two broken arms as a result of the fall.

The 10-foot-by-10-foot bounce house was not enclosed at the top.

We wish all the injured parties and their families the best ...
