5 children taken to hospital after accident at Taylors Church

All were injured; two of whom were seriously hurt after they fell out while the bounce house was airborne.

Parents of five children are counting their blessings today after high winds and an inflatable "bounce house" nearly got them killed yesterday.

Battalion Chief Ricky Reed with the Taylors Fire Department said he saw the stakes in the ground initially secured the inflatables.

Burguan said Anderson told employees in the office he wanted to drop off something with his wife and then headed to the classroom. The city is known for its high rates of violent crime, especially homicides, and has struggled to emerge from bankruptcy.

The church put forward a statement of thoughts and prayers to all those involved.

Springwell Church was hosting its annual Spring Festival on Saturday when a strong gust of wind hit the field where the carnival was being held, according to multiple media reports.

Pastor David Pearson wrote on Facebook on Sunday: "To my knowledge, two children remain hospitalized, in stable condition, for the treatment of injuries sustained in yesterday's accident". A witness to the incident reportedly said that she was there to help the children out of the inflatable once it touched ground again. The children were attending the church carnival when the accident occurred.

Reed said Duke Energy had a safety mechanism in place for the power lines that were hit by the inflatable.

"Everybody was just enjoying themselves, [it was a] calm day", said a witness who asked not to be identified told WCMH.
