Two boys, ages 5 and 6, were seriously hurt Monday when an inflatable house they were playing in was picked up by a gust of wind and soared 50 feet into the air in South Glen Falls, New York.

The boys both fell from a height of at least 15 feet, according to the Post Star.

One of the children hit the pavement and the other landed on a parked car, the newspaper reported.  A third child, a 10-year-old girl, was also knocked out of the inflatable toy but was not seriously hurt.

The boys were hospitalized.
