MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) — Three children were injured after high winds caused an inflatable bounce house to fly away in Oklahoma.

A strong gust of wind picked the bounce house up with three children inside.

The bounce house was in place Saturday for a Muskogee Public Library event at the city’s airport. 

Anthony Salcido, whose daughter was inside the inflatable at the time, says it “kept on flipping over.” Salcido tells Tulsa television station KOKI that his daughter fell from the bounce house and landed on the grass.

Salcido said adults were able to grab the bounce house and pull it to the ground.

The children were “shaken up” but no one was seriously hurt.
