4 children hospitalized after bounce house blows over in Mesa

Four children were injured after a bounce house went airborne at a park near Val Vista Drive and Brown Road.

According to the Mesa Fire Department, the bounce house was uplifted by a strong gust of wind and reported by witnesses to have gone several feet into the air during a party.

The bounce house was blown over while the children, ages 5 to 11 years old, were playing in it.

According to a GoFundMe launched by a friend of the family, a 6-year-old girl broke her pelvis and several bones in her leg. Another child suffered severe neck and back injuries, as well as cuts to her face. Both are still recovering at the Phoenix Children's Hospital ICU.
