Bounce House Blown Away | Video| 6/10/2011
When the bouncers landed, from about a dozen feet up, several people on the ground at the Oceanside party were knocked over.
Lara Rhatigan described what happened when the bounce house was suddenly blown into the sky: "A rope caught my neck and dragged me."
Her younger sister Nina said the house fell on her, and she hurt her nose and knee.
Shortly after the accident, workers quickly deflated the ride and rolled it up.
The unlikely image of three large balloon houses flying in the air stayed on the minds of the baffled and shaken-up parents.
"It was the craziest thing I`ve ever seen," said one.
"I tried to grab it and it flattened me," said another parent.
The Oceanside United Soccer Club was hosting a tournament, setting up the bounce houses for entertainment.
Authorities said most of injuries were minor.
Police said the bounce houses were weighted down with sand bags, and it was just a terrible accident.
They do not expect to file any charges in the case.
