Arizona Girl Hurt When Bounce House Blows Away

Saturday, 19 Feb 2011 10:02 PM

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) — A gust of wind picked up a bounce house with two girls playing inside Saturday, dumping one girl in the yard but carrying the other two houses away and dropping her onto a roof.

The incident in the town of Marana left a 10-year-old with serious head lacerations and other injuries. She was taken to a trauma center in Tucson after firefighters got her off the roof.

Northwest Fire District spokesman Adam Goldberg says the two girls were at birthday party when what family members called "a microburst" picked up the bounce house.

The 10-year-old was carried more than 100 feet before falling out onto the house. Her 7-year-old friend had minor injuries.

About two dozen roof tiles were shattered by the impact.
