Security camera captures moment bounce house blows away
UPI News Service, 05/14/2019
A Florida man's home security camera captured video of the moment an inflatable bounce house flew away from his son's birthday party.
Mike Simonian said his son and party guests were inside having cake when a strong gust of wind took hold of the rented bounce house and carried it 50 feet from his Deltona yard.
"I was shocked I went back to the garage and they said, 'What happened?' My face was a little pasty and I said, it's gone. The bounce house was gone," Simonian told WKMG-TV.
He said the bounce house had been secured with metal stakes, but the force of the wind pulled them out of the ground.
"It went all the way across our neighbor's yard hit his fence and knocked out a couple of his fence panels on the other side," he said.
Simonian, whose home security camera captured the incident on video, said all of the children were safe and accounted for during the incident.
"My first concern was I wanted a head count." he said. "So I went back to the garage and said, hey do we have all the kids in here, make sure everyone is eating cake, make sure no one is flipping over the fence."
