Parents thankful son is recovering after flying bounce house

Posted: Updated:
Parents of a boy trapped in a fly-away bounce house are offering lofty praise for hospital workers as their son recovers.

John and Michelle Deluca say they are feeling very grateful and relieved.

They're all feeling better after the frightening ride that landed their 6 year old in the emergency room.

Minor bumps and bruises are things all parents expect will inevitably happen to their while children growing up.

But there's isn't a parent alive who would ever expect their child to fall to the ground from an inflatable bounce house that inexplicably took flight from their family's backyard.

"I was confused, angry, sad. I was going through a grieving process,” Michelle DeLuca said.

Michelle DeLuca says her 6-year old son Noah is eating better and walking better since coming home from the hospital, and he's also in good spirits.

"There's not enough words to say how happy we are and thankful,” John DeLuca said.

One thing the DeLuca's are especially thankful for was the medical treatment they received at the hospital.

"They gave us a lot of help when we were discharged, when he was hospitalized. They worked on him very well. I'm very happy with the outcome,” Michelle said.

Even though the DeLuca's believe there was an angel looking down on their son, they're still trying to figure how something like this could have happened in the first place.

"When it did happen, that was exactly my thought. Why did it happen to my son, but why would it happen to anyone's child?" Michelle said.

Local firefighters are holding a carwash with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Noah and another boy who is still in the hospital.
