Bounce Houses and Summer Breezes Make For Terrifying Aerial Rides

Remember those carnivals growing up? Where you could go into those crazy bounce rides and do flips and twists for hours? Yeah, those times will never be the same, as one foul wind could send your and your family skyward.

13 people were injured yesterday at a Long Island soccer tournament after a strong gust of wind literally lifted whole bounce houses off the ground. With children inside. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt—I'm sure one daredevil kid went, "Let's do that again!"


As Marianna Rhatigan told News 12 Long Island, "I couldn't believe it. It was like something out of a movie." I kind of want to see that movie, if not actually live it. [CNN]
