MARANA - A gust of wind picked up a bounce house with two girls playing inside Saturday, dumping one girl in the yard but carrying the other girl two houses away and dropping her onto a roof.
The incident in the town of Marana left a 10-year-old with serious head lacerations and other injuries. She was taken to a trauma center in Tucson after firefighters got her off the roof.
Northwest Fire District spokesman Adam Goldberg says the two girls were at birthday party when what family members called a "microburst" picked up the bounce house.
The 10-year-old was carried more than 100 feet before falling out onto the house. Her 7-year-old friend had minor injuries.
About two dozen roof tiles were shattered by the impact
