Bouncy castle with students inside swept away by wind

From staff reports

A bouncy castle at Zillah High School was swept away by wind Wednesday, injuring five students after landing back on the ground.

The school issued a statement Wednesday that stated the bouncy castle was part of a student-organized event, according to KHQ.

The castle was lifted as high as a telephone pole, said one witness. The students’ injuries are not yet known.

Zillah is about 20 miles southeast of Yakima, with a population of roughly 3,000 residents.
