The accident happened at a student council event at Zillah High School in southern Washington on Wednesday afternoon. Five students were injured, according to the Zillah School District.
Molina noticed one woman trapped in the bounce house, so he ran to help her.
“I jumped over it and I pulled the string and I untied her. She was stuck to something and it was bending her knee back and I took her off and she got free and she is OK now,” Molina said.
He added that one of the five involved may have been injured before the bounce house flipped over.
Blake Larson, owner of Bounce N Party Rentals in Spokane, said he has never had anyone injured during his two years in the business.
“Each bounce house is a little different but there is printed rules on each one for you to look at,” Larson told KXLY. “There’s different things you want to do, make sure you’re using stakes or weights to weigh it down and straps to tie it down.”
It is unclear what caused the bounce house to go airborne.
