Five children have died and four others are injured after falling from a bouncy castle that was blown into the air in Australia, police say.
The accident – caused by a wind gust – happened on Thursday at a primary school fun day in Devonport, Tasmania.
Police said the children had fallen from 10m (32ft), with two boys and two girls among the victims.
The children were in grade six, meaning they were probably 10 or 11 years old. A fifth child died later in hospital.
