The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office says they received several 9-1-1 calls reporting a bounce house, located at “The Maize”on Niagara Falls Boulevard, was thrown into the air as the result of a wind gust.

The bounce house traveled approximately 50 feet from its original location. There were several children playing on the bounce house at the time it went airborne.

The children were treated for minor injuries at the scene. A 76 year old woman was standing next to the bounce house. When the bounce house went airborne, she was struck and dragged by the bounce house approximately 20 feet. She was taken to E.C.M.C for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Officials with the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department are asking anyone who had children in the bounce house at the time of the accident and did not report it to the Sheriff’s Office to please contact Deputy Daniel Zimmerman at 716-438-3393
