SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – One of the boys involved in the bouncy house accident is continuing to recover at home, and his father is speaking out about the accident.
Noah Deluca spent eight full days in the hospital after he fell to the ground when the bouncy house he was playing in flew into the air. He was released from the hospital May 20. His father, John, said he is grateful to have his son back home.
“He’s doing good; recovering well,” John said. “We have a long, long road ahead of us, but he’s doing okay.”
John said Noah has been trying to stay in good spirits. Noah’s family said the six-year-old suffered from broken bones, and his jaw is wired shut. He is currently able to walk short distances, though he is occasionally pulled in a wagon.
John said his main message was to let the community know how thankful his family is for everyone’s support.
“We just want to thank the whole community for everything they’ve done,” he said. “All the support we’re getting. It’s unbelievable.”
The South Glens Falls community has stepped up for both families involved in the bouncy house accident. At least four separate fundraisers will take place during the month of June to support the boys’ recovery.
“I would be scared to death if it were my children, and I’d hope someone would come to help me,” fundraiser organizer McKenzie Mooney said.
“It’s just amazing how something like this could turn into a big deal for everyone helping us,” John said. “We all appreciate it very, very much.”
