Girl, 7, dies after bounce house blows away
The Associated Press
LONDON — Two arrests have been made in Britain after a seven-year-old girl died while using a bouncy castle at an Easter fair.
The girl died after the inflatable castle at Harlow Town Park, 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of London, was swept away by a strong gust of wind. The girl was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital by air ambulance but still died.
Police says Sunday a man and a woman from a bouncy castle firm have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter. They have not been identified.
