SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NBC affiliate WNYT) – Two young boys were seriously injured after a “bouncy house” was blown away by a gust of wind Monday afternoon.
According to WNYT, three children were inside the play structure when the wind lifted the inflatable toy 50 feet into the air.
The three kids, ages 5, 6, and 10, fell out of the toy when the structure was about 15 feet off the ground.
The two boys were seriously injured.
The girl suffered minor scrapes and bruises.
Parents say one boy landed on a parked car and the other landed on asphalt.
Glens Falls police say one boy who landed on pavement was conscious and talking at the scene.
According to parents, the bouncy house floated over a stretch of woods and landed in a field behind a local middle school.
Police say the 10-foot by 10-foot toy was secured to the ground with spikes, but the wind lifted it away anyway.
