A family in Port St. Lucie, Florida was shocked to learn that a neighbor was responsible for pulling the plug on a bounce house holding a dozen toddlers during a child's party. Deborah Romero was hosting a birthday party for her two year old daughter Diana when suddenly the inflatable castle started to lose air and collapse on top of the children inside. "Chaos. Absolute chaos," the birthday girl's godfather, Glenn Hunt, told TODAY'S Gabe Gutierrez. "Some of the kids were crying. One of them actually was kind of traumatized by the incident. Another one when he was being removed, his leg got a little injured." The disturbing incident sent two children to the hospital, one for distress and the other to check for possible injuries.
Luckily the family had a security camera which caught the culprit in the act of yanking the cord connected to the bounce house out of it's outlet. The surveillance video shows a man who appears to be in his 60s and wearing a red shirt looking at the party over a fence for a few seconds before pulling the plug and then walking across the street. "We believe that he thinks that he was pulling the plug to the DJ booth, but it didn't, it pulled the plug to the bounce house,'' Master Sgt. Frank Sabol of the Port St. Lucie Police Department said. Police have identified the man and attempted to question him, but said he was uncooperative. He could potentially be charged with trespassing. His name has not been released.
