2 injured when inflatable slide goes airbourne in Nevada


Sparks, Nev. - An Independence Day celebration in Nevada took a terrifying turn after an inflatable slide detached from the ground and flew into the air.

Witnesses said powerful wind gusts launched the slide some 300 feet into the air, knocking over lamp posts and slammed into buildings in its path.

No one was inside or on the slide at the time.

At least two people were taken to the hospital with injuries from the flying debris.

"It just flipped it up into the air and, I mean, it went higher than a lot of the buildings and then it landed way over there," said witness Nicc Thompson.

This marks the second bounce house mishap in recent months.

Last month, two children in New Jersey were inside a bounce house when it went airbourne.
