SOUTH GLENS FALLS, New York (WNYT) –
An unbelievable accident injured two young boys, when the bouncy house they were playing in was swept up in a gust of wind, and sent nearly 50 feet into the air.
Three children were inside the bouncy house when a particularly strong gust of wind lifted the inflatable toy. They all fell out, and two were seriously injured.
Parents told WNYT that one child landed on a parked car, another on some asphalt.
They also said the bouncy house floated over a stretch of woods and landed near a middle school. Witnesses snapped pictures of the bizarre sight.
Police told WNYT the bouncy house was secured to the ground with spikes at the time, but the wind was able to lift it.
