A seven-year-old girl died on Saturday, all because she was playing in a bouncy castle. A gust of wind sent the inflatable rolling for about 500 feet in a park near London, England, with young Summer Grant trapped inside, the Telegraph reports. Taken to hospital, she died of multiple injuries. "Words just can't explain how I am feeling right now, life is just truly cruel," her 26-year-old mother Cara Blackie tells Essex Police. "Summer was a bright, beautiful and most loving little girl, it is so unfair that you have been taken, it just doesn't make sense." Police have arrested a man, 27, and woman, 24, who work at the fairground on suspicion of manslaughter by gross negligence; both have been released on bail.
Forecasters had predicted high winds of up to 50mph, and a British code for inflatables requires they be turned off when winds exceed 24mph. "We did not allow them on this bouncy castle as it just didn't look safe," says a parent who attended the fair at Harlow Town Park on Saturday with her two kids. "The winds were just far too strong." Now a conservative legislator is asking whether bouncy castles should be banned from Harlow pending an inquiry, the BBC reports. It must be cold comfort for Summer's dad, Lee Grant: "I still can’t come to terms she's not here," he says in a police statement, per the Guardian. "We all love you so so much, you will always be with us; love you to the moon and back, all our love Daddy, Mummy and family xxxx." (A crowd-funding page has been set up for the family.)
