Three children were injured after an inflatable bounce house was swept away by wind in Upstate New York this week. According to ABC News, witnesses say the children were playing inside the staked bounce house when a gust of around 25 mph wind carried it upwards of 50 feet. A 10-year-old girl fell out almost immediately, resulting in scrapes and scratches. Two boys, a five and six-year-old, were dropped from much higher, and received broken arms and a serious head injury, requiring hospitalization for both. One of the boys landed on the street while the other fell onto a car. The manufacturer of the bounce house, Little Tikes, said it was investigating the accident.
