Two-year-old boy dies after bouncy castle blows away

Two-year-old boy dies after bouncy castle blows away

A two-year-old boy has died after a bouncy castle was lifted off the ground by a strong gust of wind, US authorities have said.

The parents of the boy – named in reports as Bodhi Naaf – are “grappling with unimaginable grief” following the incident on Saturday, a Go Fund Me page said.

The “tragic accident” happened near Casa Grande, Arizona, according to a statement from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office.

“Several children were playing in a bounce house when a strong gust of wind sent it airborne into the neighbouring lot,” the sheriff’s office said.

“A two-year-old child was transported to the hospital where he passed away.”

A second child was taken to hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Sky’s US partner NBC reported.
