Bounce house flies onto California highway with child inside

A bounce house — with a 9-year-old child inside — suddenly got swept onto a nearby highway in Southern California and slammed into a vehicle amid strong winds Saturday afternoon.

Fortunately, the child survived with minor injuries.

Deputies responded to the incident on Highway 395 in Adelanto just after 3 p.m., the Victor Valley branch of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said in a news release

The inflatable bounce house was swept away from a home in the area and rolled toward the highway with the child inside, investigators said. The bounce house hit a vehicle that was traveling southbound. 

The 9-year-old was taken to a hospital for treatment, while the driver of the vehicle that was hit was "shook up from the ordeal" but otherwise wasn't hurt.
