Bouncy castle topples over during strong winds in central China

This is the terrifying moment a loose bouncy castle spun out of control and toppled over during strong winds in central China.

Shocking footage shows the inflatable structure being blown away by the powerful gusts whipping through Xianning City in the province of Hubei on December 18.

Several adults tried to grab the unanchored bouncy castle, but they were violently knocked to the ground when it slammed into them. Children’s cries could be heard after the wind had died down.

Staff at the tourist area where the bouncy castle was placed have reportedly distanced themselves from the incident, saying that the attraction is privately owned and had nothing to do with them. The accident is now being investigated by local authorities.
