LITTLETON , Colo., June 2 (UPI) -- Two children were injured after an inflatable slide in Colorado became airborne upon being swept up by a gust of wind on Sunday.

The slide was carried nearly 300 feet while a young girl and a 10-year-old boy were still inside the structure.

The girl's injuries were treated at the scene, but an ambulance had to take the boy to a local hospital, where he is expected to recover fully.

Representatives for the company that operates the attraction say event staffers followed all the proper safety procedures, while organizers of the event say they are considering whether or not to sever future ties with the company.

The incident comes less than a month after a similar incident in New York state that injured three children.
