    At least ten people were injured Friday when a bounce house blew across a football field in Houston during a school carnival.

    Witnesses told NBC affiliate KPRC multiple kids were inside the inflatable play structure when it went airborne and landed at least 30 yards away and hit a nearby fence at the River Oaks Baptist School.

    Parents rushed to pull children out of the house. At least 10 students and adults were injured, and KPRC reported at least one person was on a stretcher and wheeled into an ambulance.

    School administrators later released a statement saying, "Our highest priority is the safety of our students and families, and we ask that you join us in keeping them in your prayers."

    Officials said none of the injuries are life-threatening.
