Large inflatable slide collapses at elementary school field day

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Two elementary students were taken to a local hospital Tuesday after an inflatable slide the size of a small building collapsed and toppled over at the Hawkins Elementary Annual Field Day.

Students tried to escape after the inflatable collapsed, but some students were thought to be injured as a result of trampling over each other while trying to escape.

Officials say two students were taken to hospital for observation, but they do not have serious injuries.
