We've seen several incidents in recent years of children being hurt or killed in bounce house accidents.

There was nearly another disaster over the weekend when a bounce house was carried away by strong winds during a child's birthday party in Niagara, New York.

Video taken by a nearby homeowner shows a huge gust of wind blow the bounce house - which luckily was empty at the time - high into the air.

The house is blown into power lines about 40 feet off the ground, tangling with the wires and causing sparks to fly.
