An inflatable bounce house carrying three children was swept away in upstate New York this week, traveling some 50 feet in the air and leaving two of the kids with serious injuries after they fell out.
On Monday, the Little Tikes bounce house was lifted into the air by a gust of wind in South Glen Falls, N.Y., and two of the children fell out when it got about 15 feet off the ground. A witness said the scene was "like a horror movie." Two boys, ages 5 and 6, landed on a parked car and the pavement below. The 10-year-old girl, who fell just as it lifted off the ground, was left with minor scrapes and bruises.
This will probably be the last time parents let their children use bounce houses on windy days.
