Inflatable slide flies across field in Colorado

Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CNN) - Winds picked up an inflatable slide at a lacrosse tournament in Colorado, sending it flying across a field with two children inside.

"All of a sudden, it picks up and there's a girl going down the slide, she flies out about 8 feet in the air," said one witness.

Aleah Horstman captured this video on her cell phone. "The bouncy house went right through where all the players were standing," she said.

The slide was headed straight for the pond, but what people didn't realize was that there was a boy still caught on the slides.

A company called Airbound set up the inflatable slide. A representative would not comment except to say the slide was staked in and safety precautions were taken.

The girl was not seriously hurt. The boy who was trapped was treated at the hospital and is expected to be okay.
