Girl dies when bouncy castle blows away


(KRON) — Two people have been arrested after a young girl died from serious injuries suffered when she was blown around in a bouncy castle during an Easter fair in Essex, England.

The incident happened at around 5 p.m. Saturday at the Harlow Town Park fair, police said.

The child, Summer Grant, from Braeford Close in Norwich, was taken to a local hospital but died a few hours later from multiple injuries suffered “whilst on a bouncy castle,” Essex police said in a Facebook post.

“This is a very tragic incident where a young girl has lost her life. My deepest sympathies go out to her family,” the BBC quoted Detective Inspector Daniel Stotton as saying.

A 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence. They were bailed until May 4, Essex Police confirmed via its Facebook page.
