76-year-old woman dragged by inflatable bounce house in New York

BUFFALO, New York -- A bounce house with children inside went airborne near Buffalo.

It was thrown into the air by a wind gust, then dragged into a corn maze before landing about 50 feet away.

A 76-year-old woman was struck and dragged with the bounce house.

She was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

No one else was injured.

Authorities are investigating whether the giant inflatable was properly secured at the time.

This is the latest among several accidents involving inflatables.
