Police say two young boys who fell from an inflatable bounce house as it was swept skyward by gusty winds remain hospitalized in stable condition, with one in a medically induced coma with a head injury.
 
Police tell The Post-Star of Glens Falls (http://bit.ly/1v5hLxw ) that a 10-year-old girl and two boys, ages 5 and 6, were playing in the 10-by-10-foot structure at a South Glens Falls townhouse community Monday when it broke loose from plastic anchoring stakes.
 
The girl fell out immediately and suffered minor scrapes, but the boys didn't tumble out until the toy was 15 feet high. Police Chief Kevin Judd tells the newspaper Wednesday that the other boy has two broken arms and several broken facial bones.
 
The chief called it a "tragic accident."
