MESA, Ariz. — Four children were hospitalized Thursday after a bounce house was picked up by a heavy wind in Mesa.
The Mesa Fire Department says the incident happened around 4 p.m. local time near Brown Road and Val Vista Drive.
According to witnesses, a strong gust of wind lifted the bounce house several feet into the air during a party.
Firefighters say it's unclear how many children were inside the bounce house when the incident happened, but four children between the ages of 5 and 11 were treated with moderate to serious injuries. All four were taken to the hospital.
This incident comes just days after two children were hospitalized in Arizona after a bounce house flew 20+ feet in the air during a dust devil near Chino Valley.
