Boys tossed from flyaway bouncer still in hospital

Wednesday, the South Glens Falls School District had two of its own wrapped up in thoughts and prayers.

"Hoping for their quick recovery so they can come home and eventually they can return to school," said South Glens Falls Superintendent Michael Patton.

Patton said that the two boys who were seriously hurt when a bounce house was carried off the ground, are kindergarteners from Harrison Elementary. Police say the five and six year old boys were flown to Albany Medical Center when the house dropped them on its way up. A 10-year-old girl had minor injuries. Police said Wednesday that the boys were stable. But did not tell CBS6 their exact conditions.

"When something unfortunate like this happens, the community is going to rally to support these little boys and their families," said Patton.

Patton said that the boys' principal went to visit them at the hospital Tuesday. He wanted their families to know the community is here for them. And he said the principal brought teachers together as soon as he heard the news so they could  help other kids understand and support one another.

"I'll never forget this call," said Steven Van Guilder, the Executive Director of the Moreau Emergency Squad.

Van Guilder was a first responder at the scene. He hopes the children will be ok.

"It was a traumatic scene," he said.

Police have said that they are investigating what happened but think this was a tragic accident and that no charges are pending.

Governor Cuomo issued a safety alert on Wednesday, urging parents to use caution when using these types of devices. You can read the full statement here: http://www.cbs6albany.com/images/safetyalert.pdf
