A bouncy house flying through the air is a horrifying sight
Two young boys from South Glens Falls, New York were reportedly seriously injured on Monday after a gust of wind swept their bouncy house off the ground and into the air. According to WNYT, three children were inside the play structure when it began to lift off the ground.
Three children, ages 5,6, and 10, were all injured. A young girl suffered minor scrapes and bruises while parents say one boy landed on a parked car and the other on asphalt. Police said the boy who landed on the pavement was conscious and talking at the scene of the accident.
A witness captured the photo you see above of the bouncy house after it was lifted off the ground. As you can see, it ended up at least 50 feet in the air. Police say it was anchored to the ground but the stakes were ripped out by the wind.
Our thoughts are with the kids and their families. We can only imagine how terrifying that must have been just by looking at the photo.
