Third child released from hospital after bounce house accident
MIAMI (AP) -- The last of three children hurt when they were thrown out of a bounce house by a waterspout in South Florida has been released from a hospital. The other two children were released hours after the inflatable was sent airborne.
Authorities say the two children sent home Monday evening had minor fractures and a third child was in stable condition and held overnight for observation.
Police say the children were thrown from the bounce house soon after the waterspout lifted it from the beach at Fort Lauderdale. No pedestrians or vehicles were injured and a second, unoccupied bounce house also went flying.
The bounce houses were set up for a city-sponsored Memorial Day holiday event.
