Bounce House Disaster

Winds Lift Kids 20 Feet in the Air

breaking news

Bounce House DisasterIt looked like a replay of the Balloon Boy fiasco ... but this time 2 boys were seriously injured when they fell out of a children's bounce house that got lifted 20 feet in the air by strong winds.

It all went down in South Glens Falls in upstate New York ... where cops say the two boys (ages 5 and 6) both suffered serious injures. They were airlifted to Albany Medical Center and their current condition is unknown. 

WNYT says parents told them one boy landed on a parked car and the other landed on asphalt. There was a third child in the house when it went airborne, a 10-year-old girl, but she was apparently uninjured.

While police said the house was blown 20 feet in the air, WNYT says it was more like 50.

Police say the bounce house was staked into the ground and several adults were present at the time. Right now police say they are viewing the incident as a "tragic accident" and don't expect any charges to be filed.

That's terrible, feel bad for the kids and family. Hope the kids turn out all right. On a side note, me and one of my ex-girlfriends totally hooked up in one of those things. It was not nearly as fun as you would think. It was hard to get into a good position with the way the floor was.

ok the house is at least 100 feet up in the picture. The kids flopped out before the picture was taken dummies. Or else they would have been killed. Good thing they didnt hold on . could have been tragic.

20 feet? Ok let's look at the picture. The trees are 20 feet tall. That ****er is about 150 feet in the air. Even at the angle, which makes it look higher.

You have really sunk to a new low by posting this story on here. Two kids, 5 and 6 years of age, were seriously injured and you allow people to insult and make sick jokes about it?! Stick to your celeb trash stories and leave innocent children out of it.
