Every party has a pooper. At a recent birthday party in Port St. Lucie, a bunch of 2- and 3-year-olds were just having some innocent fun, bouncing in a bouncy house in a backyard. That’s when an unidentified older man decided there had been enough fun. A security camera captured him unplugging the bouncy house, making it deflate while the children were still inside.
“We were very nervous about the kids because it was extremely hot, and they were trapped inside the bounce house,” mother Deborah Romero said.
Romero says parents rushed over to help.
“We couldn’t really reach for all the kids, and we unfortunately had to pull one of the kids by his leg,” Romero said.
Deborah says a family member followed the cord from the bounce house, and noticed it was unplugged.
She says the family looked at surveillance and noticed an unknown man is his 60’s walking over to look at the party.
Then he walks back and unplugs the bounce house, and walks back across the street.
The incident was frightening for the small children involved. One was taken to the hospital for distress, and another for possible injuries as a result of being pulled from the heavy plastic house.
Despite canvassing the neighborhood, police have not been able to determine who the bad neighbor was.
