It went 20 feet into the air! Then panic and helplessness set in for the adults on the ground. They called 911 and just waited for the bouncy house to come down, but before it did the boys came tumbling out, one at a time. The 6-year-old was found in the street, and the 5-year-old was found in an apartment building parking lot. Both boys were injured and were airlifted to the medical center in Albany.
Come to find out, these inflatable bouncy houses can be very dangerous. A study done in 2010 found that on average, 31 children nationwide were treated for bouncy-house-related injuries each day! That doesn't sound fun to me!
