Two Children Seriously Injured in Tucson Jumping Castle Accident
Jumping castles are seen by parents as an opportunity for a day of fun for children who want to bounce around and be able to do things that they're not able to do in any other play environment. These blow-up castles are also seen as relatively safe alternatives for children, as they are usually enclosed and provide for safe landings. However, they can also be dangerous if strong winds get a hold of them, and sadly that appears to be what occurred over the weekend when two children were seriously injured in a Tucson jumping castle accident.
According to authorities, this terrifying Tucson jumping castle accident occurred at approximately 2 p.m. on Saturday when two unidentified children were playing inside of the inflatable structure near West Speedwayand North 11th Avenue. Suddenly, a strong gust of wind picked the castle up and lifted it 15 feet into the air. It also blew the castle into a nearby road and across at least three lanes of traffic before finally blowing it to the ground on the median. The boy and the girl who were inside were seriously injured, but both are expected to survive.
Arizona Jumping Castle Injury Statistics
First, we'd like to express our relief that these children survived this horrifying incident. While we hope that they are able to recover quickly and fully from what were described as serious injuries, this situation could have been much worse when one considers all of the variables present with an out-of-control structure that contained children blowing and bouncing on roads with traffic. In addition, this Tucson jumping castle accident now stands as the second incident of its kind in the last 60 days across the state.
