Scary Video Shows a Bounce House Floating Away Straight into Power Lines

This is definitely what you don’t want to see at a kid’s birthday party: a bounce house flying away straight into the power lines after being swept up in the air by a big gust of wind. You can actually see it first fly away from the power lines but then suddenly make a quick U-turn straight into the transmission tower. After it makes contact, sparks fly and a mini-explosion could even be heard. Scary.


This happened in Niagara County, New York. Luckily, according to WIVB, no one was hurt and no one lost their power. Weigh down those bounce houses, people.
