ALBANY N.Y. - A freak bounce house incident leaves two boys injured, but listed in stable condition at Albany Medical Center.


One boy remains in an induced coma.


Both victims were flown to Albany Medical Center from South Glens Falls where bounce house accident occurred Monday afternoon. 

Police say one girl and the two boys were playing in a Little Tykes Jump and Slide Bounce House when a gust of wind yanked it at least 20 feet off the ground.


Officials say the girl suffered minor scrapes and bruises, but the two boys had serious injuries, including head trauma.


The South Glens Falls school district has confirmed these boys are kindergarten students at Harrison Avenue Elementary.

Neighbors say the owner of the bounce house had the inflatable toy for years and always properly secured it to the ground. It is believed the owner of the bounce house will not be facing criminal charges, as police are calling this a freak accident.
