#7: Girl, 7, dies when bounce castle blows away | The Modesto Bee

Two arrests have been made in Britain after a seven-year-old girl died while using a bouncy castle at an Easter fair.

The girl died after the inflatable castle at Harlow Town Park, 30 miles north of London, was swept away by a strong gust of wind. The girl was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital by air ambulance but still died.

Police says Sunday a man and a woman from a bouncy castle firm have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter. They have not been identified.
