All three of the kids eventually tumbled out of the castle, but only after it became airborne. The girl fell out soon after the castle took flight, getting away with only minor scrapes and bruises, but the boys only escaped once the castle had reached a height of 15 feet. One of the boys fell onto the ground and the other landed on a nearby car. (How terrifying!)
Both boys, kindergartners at Harrison Avenue Elementary School, were rushed to nearby Albany Medical Center to be treated for serious injuries.
"I actually watched the fellow that put it up; he staked it and did everything correctly. All the kids were having fun until they screamed to me to come down," said Stephanie Hansen, the partygoer who called 911.
If you're looking for some good news in all of this, the boys are both expected to make a full recovery. As for the bouncy castle, it was eventually found in a nearby field.
