Bounce house with kids inside swept into the air by waterspout

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (WTNH) — Three children went to the hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida after an inflatable bounce house was swept into the air by a waterspout.

That waterspout came ashore on Monday, picking up the bounce house along with the children inside. Those children were thrown from the flying house onto the beach, before the bounce house flew across a parking lot and into the road.

All of the children were alert when they were transported from the hospital. Two were treated and released, the third was held for observation.
