NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Two toddlers were hurt when an inflatable bounce house they were in was lifted by a gust of wind and blown about 40 feet at a Nashua, New Hampshire, farm.

Authorities say a two-year-old boy and a three-year-old boy had climbed into the bounce house at Sullivan Farm on Sunday, October 12th when it suddenly went airborne, flying over a fence and then crashing to the ground.

The younger boy suffered critical injuries and was flown to a Boston hospital. The three-year-old boy also was injured.

The farm’s co-owner, Gary Bergeron said the bounce house had been inflated so it could dry off and was not open at the time. But the father of one of the injured boys says a farm volunteer led visitors to believe it was open.
