Children hurt when wind picks up bounce house

Two boys were hospitalized after they fell from a bounce house blown into the air by a gust of wind.

It happened just before 3:30 p .m. Monday, May 12, 2014 in South Glen Falls, New York.

Witnesses said they saw the owners had staked the Little Tykes brand bounce house, and that they appeared to have properly set it up.

A gust of wind launched the 10-by-10 feet bounce house 50 feet into the air according to WNYT.

A ten-year-old girl reportedly suffered scrapes and a minor injury to her shoulder when she fell from the bounce house as it went airborne.

Two boys, ages five and six years old, fell from the bounce house as it was 15 to 20 feet in the air. One of the boys landed on a parked car, and the other landed in the street. Both boys were taken by ambulance to a hospital; one suffered broken bones and the other suffered a serious head injury.
