Hazard Alert No 31 Safe operation of inflatable amusement structures was issued on 14 March 2001.
An inflatable amusement structure (jumping castle) was erected and operating on an apparently fine day when it is reported that a strong gust of wind lifted the jumping castle, releasing or breaking the restraining ropes.
Twelve children were injured in the incident, one fatally.
Similar incidents have been reported in other parts of Australia and overseas, including Tasmania, where a jumping castle's restraining ropes slipped off the anchoring pegs, injuring a mother and two children.
