Five children were injured when an inflatable bounce house and slide were lifted into the air by a strong gust of wind at a church carnival in Taylors, South Carolina, according to the church and the Taylors fire department.

The Springwell Church was holding their annual Spring Carnival when an inflatable slide and a bounce house went airborne around 2 p.m., CBS affiliate WSPA reports.
