Three children were seriously injured in Fort Lauderdale when the bounce house they were playing in was lifted from the beach by a waterspout. According to a CNN article on May 26, the strong wind sent the inflated house across a parking lot and over several lanes of traffic. The children are believed to have fallen out of the house before it reached the trafficked area. The three children were immediately sent to local hospitals to seek medical treatment for their injuries and are now recovering.
The bounce house was not properly tethered to the ground at the time of the accident, causing the play area and the children to fly more than 60 feet. Bounce house accidents are common occurrences that lead to emergency room visits by children daily across the United States.
