Two young boys from upstate New York are recovering after falling nearly two stories when a gust of wind swept up the inflatable bounce house they were playing in, police said.
The boys, ages 5 and 6, were seriously injured Monday while playing in a yard near their apartment building in South Glens Falls, New York, police said. The bounce house was swept up in a "sudden and strong burst of wind," according to a police statement. The boys fell to the ground after the inflatable house was lifted 15 to 20 feet into the air, police said.
