Wyandanch, NY- Five children were injured Tuesday after an inflatable slide toppled over at a school function, sending children crashing to the ground. Suffolk County Police say they responded to Wyandanch Park on Mount Avenue at approximately 9:45am, after multiple children were injured. In total police say 14 children, ages 6 and 7, were on the inflatable at the time it collapsed. One child suffered a broken leg, four others sent to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Officials say its possible the accident happened because of uneven weight distribution on the inflatable.
