‘Bouncy castles’. ‘Bounce houses’. Let’s just call them ‘inflatable child-nightmare bags’.
13 people sustained minor injuries when three inflatable structures took flight during an Oceanside United Soccer Club event in Oceanside, NY.
Several children were reportedly inside the bounce houses when a strong wind lifted them several feet in the air. “It was the craziest thing you ever saw,” a witness told ABC News. “The next inflatable that two of my kids were in started bouncing and sliding. I tried to catch it, and it just flattened me.”
