A THREE-year-old girl was among four injured when a freak “tornado” sent two bouncy castles flying in a Yorkshire park today.

Toilets were blown over and branches fell from trees as the wind lifted a bouncy castle and inflatable slide 30ft into the air.

Children could be heard screaming in the video as panicked families were forced to flee the scene alongside hundreds of attendees.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service said four people had been taken to hospital including the three-year-old, whose injuries are not believed to be serious.

Two other patients were taken to Hull Royal Infirmary, but the ambulance service was unable to say what their injuries were.

A fourth person was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

Thankfully it appears no kids were on the bouncy castle when the gust of wind hit.
