All it took was a big gust of wind to send a giant inflatable slide soaring into the sky at an Independence Day festival in Nevada. Moments after the giant inflatable slide passed a safety inspection, and just before the kids play area opened, a big gust of wind sent the slide a hundred feet into the air. A witness captured video of the floating slide on their cell phone. Three adults were injured when the slide took off and transported to a local hospital. No one was seriously injured in the incident.
