Slide collapse sends 6 children to hospitals
Six children from Algonquin Lakes Elementary School suffered very minor injuries Thursday when a giant inflatable slide collapsed at their school.
Weather forced today’s scheduled field day indoors, along with the 15-foot-high slide and inflatable “bounce house.” It is unclear if the injured were on the slide or near the slide as it toppled.
The slide was provided by a private vendor. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
