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.
