Two young boys were seriously injured Monday when a “bounce house” they were playing in was picked up by a gust of wind and soared 50 feet into the air in South Glen Falls, New York.
The boys, ages 5 and 6, both fell from a height of at least 15 feet, according to the Post Star.
One boy hit the pavement while the second boy landed on a parked car, the newspaper reported.
“It was like a horror movie,” witness Taylor Seymour told the newspaper. “It just kept going up and up. It cleared our building and the trees.”
The Post Star reported that a third child, a 10-year-old girl, was also knocked out of the inflatable toy but was not seriously hurt.
No information was released on the conditions of the two boys who remained hospitalized Tuesday night, the newspaper reported.
