JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (NBC/KUSA) — Another incident where one of those bouncy balloon houses is blown away has arisen.

Here’s cell phone video as it happened Saturday afternoon near Denver.

A strong gust of wind picked up the bounce castle and carried it several hundred feet.

Two children were inside when it rolled away.

One child was checked out on the scene. The other was taken to an urgent care for treatment.

It is not clear if the bounce castle was tethered down.

Colorado does not regulate the bounce houses.
