SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – Two New York boys were hospitalized on Monday after a strong gust of wind blew an inflatable bounce house high off the ground while they were playing inside, according to multiple media reports.

WNYT is reporting a 10-year-old girl and two boys, ages 5 and 6, were in the bounce house when it broke loose from stakes holding it down. The inflatable toy floated as high as 50-feet in the air, according to the report.

The three kids fell out of the bouncy house. The two boys were seriously injured. One boy landed on a parked car and the other boy landed on asphalt.

The girl only suffered minor scrapes and bruises.
