Fundraiser to benefit boys after bounce house accident

Posted:
SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. - A fundraiser to benefit the boys injured in a bounce house accident will be held on Sunday.

Mr. Bill's Car Hop will have live music and games for the public to take part in on Sunday starting at 11 a.m. 

During the event, 100-percent of the proceeds and 50-percent of food sales, will be going to the families effected by the accident. 

On May 12, two boys were injured after the bounce house they were inside was yanked off the ground by a gust of wind. The kindergartners fell from the toy when it reached about 15 to 20 feet in the air. They suffered serious injuries and had to be taken to Albany Medical Center.

One girl was also in the bounce house but fell out quickly. She suffered minor scrapes and bruises. 

Since the accident, both boys have been released from the hospital.

Sunday's event goes until 3 p.m.
