SOUTH GLENS FALLS (AP) -- The second of two young New York boys injured when an inflatable play house became airborne has been released from a hospital.

Police in South Glens Falls tell The Post-Star of Glens Falls that the 6-year-old was released earlier this month and is back home. The boy is continuing treatment for two broken arms and other injuries.

He and a 5-year-old boy suffered serious injuries May 12 when the bounce house they were playing was blown into the air by a strong gust of wind. A 10-year-old girl suffered minor injuries after falling out immediately, but police say the two boys were 15 to 20 off the ground when they tumbled out and landed on asphalt.

The younger boy was released from the hospital by late May.
