Grumpy Neighbour Sends Children To Hospital After Deflating Their Bouncy Castle

Grumpy Neighbour Sends Children To Hospital After Deflating Their Bouncy Castle


Being a neighbour can be tough work. Even if you're friends with the people next door, it's inevitable that now and again they'll really get on your nerves.

Whether it's the dog barking, music at night, the TV on a bit loud or any other general annoyances, after a long day at work sometimes you just cannot be arsed with them.

However, if any of this happens usually it'll be ignored as to not be a fun sponge, or you'll just politely ask them if they can stop.


The same can't be said for this grumpy fella, who's actions sent a few kids to hospital.

Deborah Romer had thrown her daughter a birthday party, complete with bouncy castle - the ultimate party accessory. However, the festivities came to an abrupt end when the castle was deflated while the children were playing on it.

According to CBS 12 two kids were rushed to hospital as it came down on as many as 12 of them.

Surveillance cameras, set up by Romer after her Christmas lights were cut, managed to capture the culprit, and it was an elderly neighbour. He'd seemingly had enough of the fun being had in the nearby garden and so walked around the side of the house to pull the plug.

According to CBS 12, one child was taken to the emergency room for distress, and another to be checked for injuries.

"We were very nervous about the kids because it was extremely hot, and they were trapped inside the bounce house," Romer said. "We couldn't really reach for all the kids, and we unfortunately had to pull one of the kids by his leg."

Police have reportedly began an investigation into the matter.

It's an odd crime to commit, but not as odd as this.

Ronald Gregory Wesly unlawfully entered his neighbour's house after she left for work and began to fry up some chicken. He also poured himself a glass of vodka.

Samantha O'Neal, Wesly's neighbour, returned home from work at around 9pm, pretty peeved that her tea had been eaten and a substantial amount of her vodka had been swigged.

O'Neal kicked him out and then called the police, who found him aimlessly wondering about, according to the Gainesville Sun.

They arrested him and charged him with burglary, as well as resisting an officer and petty theft.
