Two boys hurt after playhouse blows 15ft in the air

Two boys were taken to hospital in New York after falling from an inflatable playhouse after strong winds sent it into the air.

NBC Washington reports that a 10-year-old girl and two boys, aged five and six, fell after the inflatable broke loose from stakes holding it down.

Police say the girl was near the door of the playhouse and fell as it became airborne, suffering minor scrapes. The house was about 15 feet off the ground when the boys tumbled out of the toy. One landed on a parked car while the other fell onto the ground, according to local media.
