SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Two New York boys are hospitalized after a strong gust of wind blew an inflatable bounce house high off the ground while they were playing inside it.

Police tell The Post-Star of Glens Falls (http://bit.ly/1gj8m1b ) that a 10-year-old girl and two boys, ages 5 and 6, were in the structure at a South Glens Falls townhouse community Monday afternoon when it broke loose from stakes holding it down.

Officers say the girl was near the door and fell as it became airborne, suffering minor scrapes. They say the bounce house was about 15 feet off the ground when the boys tumbled out.

One landed on a parked car while the other fell onto asphalt.

Both are hospitalized Tuesday morning. Information on their injuries and conditions hasn’t been released.
