5 children dead after fall from castle bounce house that was blown into air

Five children were killed and five others injured when they fell to the ground from a bouncy castle that was blown into the air by a gust of wind outside an Australian school Thursday.

The unimaginable tragedy took place during a celebration marking the last week of classes before Christmas break at Hillcrest primary school in northern Tasmania, police said.

The children in the bouncy castle were tossed from a height of about 33 feet on a sunny, early summer day that was forecast by local weather services to have “light winds.”
