SOUTH GLENS FALLS (NY) – Two young boys were injured after an inflatable bounce house was swept away, apparently by a gust of wind, Monday afternoon.
Three children were on 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 as it reached heights of 15 to 20 feet. The two boys were seriously injured.
“The first thing I thought was that was my sister falling through the sky, because all I saw was arms and legs going,” said Taylor Seymour, whose 10-year-old sister was one of the children playing on the inflatable and suffered scrapes and a minor injury to her shoulder when she was tossed from the bounce house as it became airborne.
