Wind carries bounce house 200 feet; 2 kids hurt
The Associated Press
LITTLETON, Colo. — Authorities say two children in suburban Denver were injured in the latest case of an inflatable bounce house breaking loose and being blown around in the wind.
The bounce house rolled across a field Saturday at the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Jamboree as winds gusted to around 30 mph.
Witness Vannessa Atencio told KUSA-TV that a girl was immediately thrown from the house. A boy remained inside as it rolled about 200 feet through a lacrosse game before stopping near a pond.
The girl was treated at the scene. The boy was taken to the hospital, but firefighters didn't report any serious injuries.
