A 2-year-old child died after a strong gust of wind sent the bounce house he was in airborne and into a neighboring lot in central Arizona, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said.

The toddler, Bodhi Naaf, is the son of Phoenix firefighter Karl Naaf, according to the United Phoenix Firefighters Local 493 union.

While multiple children were in the bounce house at the time of the April 27 incident in Casa Grande, the toddler and another child were the only ones taken to the hospital, according to the Pinal County Sherriff’s Office.

The other child did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

“This appears to have been a tragic accident,” Pinal County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Lauren Reimer said in a statement. “We would like to extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the grieving family.”
