Children injured when wind blows bounce house into power lines

Children injured when wind blows bounce house into power lines

A group of children were injured when a jumping castle they were playing on suddenly became airborne.

Taylors Fire Department Battalion Chief Rickey Reed confirmed that the stakes in the ground initially secured the inflatables, but weren't enough to stand up to the gust of wind that came through.

The church was holding their annual spring carnival.

The church said that as of Sunday, two of them remained there in stable condition.

Five children were hospitalized in a bouncy house accident Saturday at a church carnival in Taylors, South Carolina.

Kellie Owens, a witness, said she heard the children screaming. Kids fell from the air as they were thrown out of the bounce house.

Unlike under ObamaCare, the plan would not extend the protections to people who were uninsured and trying to enroll in coverage. So, again, to Congress - both Democrats and Republicans - come together in bipartisanship to make the ACA better.

Witnesses said the inflatable slide damaged power lines along Wade Hampton Boulevard and caused an outage for several hours in that area.

"It was very chaotic when we first arrived just because of the sheer number of people and everybody being upset", Reed said.

According to Springwell Church, the church was hosting a festival when a gust of wind picked up the bounce house.

Five children were inside the bounce house when it flew away, stopping when it hit a power line.

Elvis German, who was working nearby, said one house became caught on power lines and was about 20 feet in the air, FOX6 writes.

The church released a statement that said, "We are saddened for those who were injured during the unfortunate accident today".
