Bouncy Castle Freak Accident Leave Four Children Dead

In Australia, five children were killed and five other injured after strong winds blew a bouncy castle into the air outside a school.

The tragedy occurred during a celebration of the last week of classes at Hillcrest primary school in Tasmania before Christmas break, police said.

The children inside the bouncy castle fell from a height of roughly 33 feet. The forecast called for “light winds.”

All of the victims were in sixth grade.

“On a day when these children were meant to be celebrating their last day of primary school, instead we’re all mourning their loss,” Tasmanian police commissioner Darren Hine said.

“Our hearts are breaking for the families and the loves ones, school mates, teachers of these young people who were taken too soon,” Hine said. “Our thoughts are also with those emergency service personnel who attend to try and save these people’s lives.”

COVID Quarantine Escapees Arrested After Manhunt

In Australia, police arrested three people who escaped a COVID-19 quarantine compound. The escapees had all tested negative the day before they broke out.

Police previously said three people had scaled the perimeter fence of the Center for National Resilience compound.  

Authorities set up checkpoints and inspected cars to find the three individuals. They were quickly apprehended and taken into custody.

“Police and staff at the Center for National Resilience are currently confirming the absconder’s identities prior to releasing further information,” officials said.

The site, which can hold up to 2,000 people, is an old mining camp turned into a quarantine center by the Australian government in August.

Fears of contagion were reportedly heightened after one person at the facility tested positive for the omicron variant on Tuesday.
