Child seriously hurt on Norfolk beach inflatable

In an incident which started as fun and ended as a tragedy, a young girl died after a bouncy castle on a beach exploded.

A British MP has called for a temporary ban on bouncy castles in public places after a girl was thrown from one and killed by the English seaside on Sunday.

An inflatable at a beach in Norwich exploded and threw a child 20ft in the air, witnesses say.

.

Witnesses reported that the bouncy castle exploded as a result of the heat as temperature soared.

The bursting of the trampoline and children's play area is cordoned off by police. "Never ever will I let my girls on a bouncy castle, ever". More than a dozen calls were received at just after 11am, and several people at the scene including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) were providing assistance to the patient.

Ambulance teams took the child to the James Paget Hospital "in a serious medical condition". She was rushed to James Paget Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

A man gave her cardiopulmonary resuscitation until an ambulance arrived.

"A parent myself, I can't imagine the grief being experienced by the family during this hard time".

"A police cordon has been put in place at the scene whilst enquiries continue and this is likely to remain in place for the rest of the day".

In 2016, a 7-year-old girl in Essex died after a bouncy castle blew away with her in it.

"The witnesses report a loud bang before the incident but we don't know at this stage what caused the trampoline to apparently burst and that's the goal of the investigation that we will be undertaking over the next day or so".

Fairground workers William Thurston, 29, and his 26-year-old wife Shelby were jailed for three years in June over the "entirely preventable" death of Summer Grant.

The inflatable had not been properly secured to the ground at an Easter fair, a trial at Chelmsford Crown Court heard.
