Bounce house flies into electrical tower

| Jun 24, 2016 | Products Liability |

An ominous video is making the rounds of the Internet these days. Shared by Niagara County Fire Wire on Twitter, it made its way to other websites.

The footage shows a children’s “bounce house” caught aloft by a gust of wind in upstate New York, then slamming into an energized electrical tower on Saturday, June 18. When the inflatable attraction impacts with the metal structure, sparks fly.

By a stroke of luck, there were no children jumping inside the bounce house when it came untethered, station WABC reported. It took a team of professionals to remove the deflated attraction from the electrical tower.

In the video that spread like wildfire over Twitter, a woman can be heard screaming, “Oh my God, the bounce house!” When the fire bursts out when it hits the tower, she curses loudly.

These attractions are staples at festivals, fairs, birthday parties and any gatherings where there will be children. Only two summers ago, two other New York children suffered serious injuries in the same type of accident.

So does this mean that bounce houses are inherently dangerous? To an extent, yes. The very nature of these structures make them potentially harmful under certain weather conditions. However, this doesn’t mean that on a bright, sunny day a bounce house will be a high risk environment for children. But certainly the same qualities that make them so much fun for kids to jump around in can make them hazardous when the winds begin to pick up.

If your child was injured in an inflatable bounce house, you may be able to pursue a claim for damages from any negligent manufacturer or other parties.
